Niyah Zuri and The Pharaoh's Throne is heroine leading, compass wielding, time jumping, dinosaur evading, Nile River racing, & multiculturally educating! Niyah Zuri and The Pharaoh's Throne follows self-assured heroine Niyah Zuri as she & her best friends, Miguel and Hugo Gonzales, travel through time with the use of a mystical map. Children are taken on an adventure with every turn of the page as the trio forge their friendship through exploration. The series begins its epic tale when Niyah and the Gonzales twins discover an enchanted map in their clubhouse and are accidentally teleported to the Triassic period. After evading carnivorous dinosaurs, the time-jumping continues when they're sent back to Ancient Egypt in order to help a young Prince Tut overcome his fear of rule. The group race against the clock to complete their mission, returning to their time period in haste, as the Pharaoh's sudden death has the royal guards suspicious of Tut's foreign visitors.
What's a heroine without her loyal best friends? Meet the Gonzalez Twins; Hugo and Miguel!
I am thrilled to share the final illustration of my main character: Meet Niyah Zuri!
