Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll


Chapter 4


Secrets of a Sun King chapter 4 - YouTube


In this chapter we find out that her Grandad wants Lillian to take the jar back to Egypt. Lilian says, "... what mattered most was a jar being returned to its rightful place." 

What do you think is the rightful place of the jar? Why?


Find out more about the procession of the Unknown Soldier that Lilian attended with her parents here:  The Cenotaph, the Unknown Warrior and how we remember - Fun Kids - the UK's children's radio station (


Why do you think Lilian remembers that day at this point in the story? How do you think it links to the Egyptian jar? Why might Lilian's Grandad not have attended the procession?
