Essay Topic 1

3. Discuss why it is vital that an abused child like Ranofer have people in his life that care about him and that he can trust. How might those people help mitigate the consequences emotionally and mentally of his brother's abuse?
Essay Topic 2
The more Ranofer thinks about it, though, the more he realizes that a tomb is the only place Gebu could have gotten a goblet such as the one he has. Ranofer is frightened because he knows the punishment is death, but he also knows that Gebu must be punished. This is a moral dilemma that Ranofer must handle alone because he does not want to cause trouble for his friends.
1. Why do you think Ranofer believes Gebu is stealing from tombs because of the goblet? Where else might Gebu have gotten the goblet?
2. Why do you think Ranofer is frightened because of the punishment for tomb robbing? Do you think he is concerned his half brother could be hung? Why or why not?
3. Discuss why Ranofer's decision is a moral dilemma? How could his friends get in trouble based on his decision?
Essay Topic 3
Ranofer knows that Gebu is stealing again because he can see the evidence in the new things Gebu has bought and the money he often gives to Ranofer. Ranofer talks about this with his friends and they decide to begin spying on Gebu and his friends.
1. What might be inferred from Ranofer's society from the fact that Ranofer thinks Gebu is stealing because he has new items and gives Ranofer money even though Gebu is a self employed stone cutter? Use examples from the book to support your answer.
2. How likely do you think it is that Ranofer as a young boy would notice and infer so much from so little? Use examples from the book and your own life to support your answer.
3. Why do you think Ranofer's friends would decide to spy on his brother and his brother's friends? What would they gain by doing this?
