The Golden Goblet




This was the scariest part of The Golden Goblet:

Ranofer was laying on his mat. Ranofer heard the gate shut with a clang, so he got up and looked around and Ranofer saw Gebu walking out of the gate. When Gebu was far enough, Ranofer got up and followed Gebu to the Valley of the Kings.

Wenamon met Gebu and they both went walking to the tombs. Wenamon thought that someone was following them and Gebu became angry and said, "Go and have a look then!" When Wenamon turned the corner to look back, Ranofer hid up above on a rock shelf. When Wenamon walked past, Ranofer saw his braided hair directly beneath him. Wenamon walked back to Gebu and they both continued to the tomb.

Wenamon and Gebu were very clever to do this on the day of the festival, because all the guards would be feasting and drinking barley beer.

Wenamon and Gebu moved a big boulder on to the side and they both crawled into small tunnel which led to the tomb of Queen Tiy's mother and father. Then Ranofer, who was laying next to the opening, being very still, was knocked into the tunnel by a vulture, who thought he was dead. He moved on through the tunnel and hit his head. So, he started to crawl the rest of the way. He poked his head through an opening and saw two eyes looking at his so he quickly jumped back. Wenamon heard a noise and said, "Did you hear something?" and Gebu said, "It was nothing."

Then Ranofer pushed himself into the tomb and noticed that the eyes belonged to a statue who was guarding the tomb. He looked around and he saw a light in the distance. He walked in a tiny bit more and then he thought he should leave the tomb and tell Heqet and the Ancient. However, as he was walking back, he knocked over a vase and it fell on the ground. Wenamon and Gebu ran to have a look. Ranofer only had time to jump below and table. Wenamon and Gebu looked around the room to see what they could see. Then Ranofer picked up a golden jewel box and threw it at Gebu which knocked him to the ground. Then he threw something else at Wenamon and quickly ran to the exit of the tunnel to the big boulder. He climbed out of the tomb and pushed the boulder in front of the entrance, but it was not shut completely, so he quickly ran and thought to himself, "That will only hold them for a bit."

Meanwhile, Heqet and the Ancient had decided to look for Ranofer in the Valley of the Kings. They could not find him and were just on their way back to Thebes when they heard something and turned around and saw a figure running towards them. Then after a while they noticed it was Ranofer. They ran towards him and asked him what he had been doing. Ranofer tried to explain and told them, "Wenamon and Gebu are robbing the tomb of Queen Tiy's mother and father. I ran out and shut the tomb entrance, but there is still a gap." So Heqet and Ancient went to the tomb (which Ranofer pointed out to them- where the vulture had been) and Ranofer took off to the city of Thebes where he wanted to tell Queen Tiy that someone was robbing the tomb of her parents.

So, he climbed up a palm tree, jumped on the wall, into the palace grounds. Will he get to see the queen?

You'll have to read the rest of the story yourself to find out what happens.

I enjoyed The Golden Goblet
by: Anonymous

"The Golden Goblet" is a good book. At first I didn't like it , but then it became very mysterious and I had to keep reading. I just had to find out how the book ended, and what happened to some characters. It is a good book for school age kids learning about Egypt. If you are reading "The Golden Goblet", I hope you keep reading it and get as excited about what happens as I did.

I didn't really get this book but...
by: Mellissa

I just finished reading this book in English class. Even though I didn't really like it, I didn't understand the authors choice of descriptive writing in some parts. And now our drama class is making a play about it and now it worked out that I have to write some of the scenes. This should be just great...

The Golden Goblet truly is a book that contains elements essential to literature.. that's why i think elementary kids are reading this.. it is not the most exciting book, but it has morals... i agree that it's boring at times, but if you look hard enough, you'll find suspense and excitement!

Yes, I agree the book isn't great, and not really my type of read. Honestly, I really didn't like it much. I hope next year the books my class reads are better. Like the warriors series!!! <3 <3 <3 LOL xD
