  If you are not in a hurry and want to wait for me to have a bit more time, I 
can get a copy for under $5.  Let me know; it would be at least 2-4 weeks...

  Keep up with Nichole's recovery:

  Hi everyone,

  I just finished a children's book, I would say almost a Young adult, on the 
Rosetta Stone.

  And the author does a good job of describing the stone and what is on it... 
however through the text on certain pages, he states things like.

  The scientists looked at the hieroglyphs like this.

  and then there is what I am to assume is some hieroglyphic writing.

  I was wondering if someone who has access to the book might be willing to do 
some picture descriptions for these insertions into the text, and any other 
pictures, though the captions are actually quite descriptive.  It is a great 
book, only about 70 pages.

  Title: The Riddle of the Rosetta Stone
  Author: James Cross Giblin

  It is the hardcover edition.

  I don't think the descriptions of the hieroglyphs are necessary but they 
would definitely enhance the book and make the reader feel like they had read 
the entire book instead of knowing that some things were um missing.

  Thanks everyone, smile.
