A long time ago, before humans and animals, the world was just water. There was one egg that lay there in the water, When that egg hatched, Ra was born. Ra did not want to spend his time floating around, doing nothing, so he flew into the sky and became the sun.
Ra dried up a lot of the water and created land. Ra was all alone so he made a wife who was called Nut. Nut was the goddess of the sky. Ra made many gods and goddesses which were his children but also worked for him.
Ra had a favourite child which was actually his grandchild. He is name was Osiris. Osiris had a brother named Set. To show Osiris how much he was loved, Ra made Osiris the first Pharaoh of Egypt. Osiris married Isis and the king and queen settled down quite happily with their son Horus.
Set was incredibly jealous. Set killed his brother Osiris, and chopped him into little pieces. He threw the pieces into the Nile River. Set was sure he would get away this murder. Isis soon heard what Set had done.
Isis managed to gather the pieces of her beloved Osiris. She brought these pieces to her good friend Anubis, the jackal-headed god. Anubis was very clever. He managed to put the pieces of Osiris together again. But he did not have the power to bring him back to life, so that Osiris could retake his place beside his beloved Isis, and rule Egypt as king.
When Horus heard what his uncle Set had done, although he was still only a boy, he tracked down his uncle Set and murdered him. Isis was very grateful to Anabis but she was still very upset because no matter what, Osiris was dead. She knew she was never going to see her husband ever again.
