"Ever thought of becoming a water hauler?"

"How about a necromancer?"

Life was tough in Old Testament times. People had to cross deserts on foot, grow food on parched land and deal with earthquakes, drought and disease.

Had you lived then, you might not have wanted to be a water hauler. That would have meant walking for miles with a heavy jar full of water on your head. Perfumers had a more pleasant job, concocting sweet-smelling fragrances their customers used to mask the smell of unwashed bodies -- and to keep flies away.

Other jobs included necromancer (for those who liked to communicate with the dead), date picker (not for those afraid of heights) and gold jewelry maker (people thought they were magicians ).

A fact-filled introduction, detailed timeline and thorough index make this book perfect for research projects, while the humorous illustrations and snappy text provide an entertaining read. Kids will look at history in a whole new way thanks to this unique approach.
