About the Author

GEORGE NEEB lives in Brantford, Ontario. As a school teacher for many years, he helped his students overcome the challenges of bullying and making healthy friendships. This story is based on his observations in the classroom. George enjoys spending time at his cabin by a lake.


"Using charming rhymes, the book tells the story of a young girl named Akia who embarks on a mission to the palace after misfortune befalls her father. Neeb's bright illustrations in Egyptian 2-dimensional style and hieroglyphic vocabulary interspersed throughout are the greatest parts of this book. At the back, Neeb describes how he achieved his papyrus texture through paints so that readers can replicate his art style for their own story."

"We fell in love with this gem of a book instantly and so will you!" -Reading With Your Kids

"George Neeb's historical picture book, Pharaoh's Arrow, is a gorgeously illustrated tale of a young girl's life in ancient Egypt. The plot is a compelling one that will capture the imaginations of readers and listeners alike. Neeb's illustrations, which he based on actual Egyptian artwork, are very impressive indeed. His use of traditional colors, authentic hieroglyphics and drawing styles is accomplished, and I found myself poring over each panel to absorb and appreciate every little detail. What an amazing way to introduce an ancient culture to young children! Pharaoh's Arrow is most highly recommended (5 Stars)." -Readers' Favorite

"Very impressed by this book. I can't get over how authentic the illustrations are. The story is written in rhyme and has the feel of a classic fable. In fact I had to look it up to see if it actually was a real Egyptian story. Centered around a young girl, who faces hardship and seeks revenge and in the end learns about forgiveness ... throw in some authentic Egyptian gods for good measure and you got a winner!!" -@kidsbookguru review on Instagram
