Bastet - DVD
In far away Cairo, allegiance between friends is put to the test. Among the cats that live in the streets of Cairo are two good friends, Bastet and Sabah. Their lives are not easy, but they have their small pleasures, their dreams, and each other. Their fondest dream is to visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and see the golden mask of King Tutankhamun. One day, the chance to make this dream come true is suddenly offered to Bastet by her new "friend" Khufu. There's only one problem. Khufu insists that Sabah not be included in the adventure. This story of allegiance between friends is set in one of the world's oldest cities — among monuments, mosques, markets, and museums. Illustrator Itoko Maeno's exquisite and carefully researched depictions of the ancient Khan el-Khalili bazaar, the timeless Nile, and the treasures of Tutankhamun provide a luminous backdrop for this thought-provoking story.
Bastet will help you:
- Explore ways to maintain and strengthen friendships
- Consider the importance of loyalty between friends
- Introduce information about present day Egypt
- Investigate ancient Egypt and the science of archaeology
