Cell. There are 5 monkeys in it. A bunch of bananas are tied to the ceiling. Below them is a staircase. Hungry, one of the monkeys went to the stairs with the clear intention to get a banana. As soon as she touched the stairs, the tap opens and ALL monkeys are poured with very cold water. It takes a little time, and another monkey is trying to feast on a banana. The same icy water. The third monkey, having become stupid for hunger, tries to get a banana, but the rest grab it, not wanting a cold shower. Now, remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new monkey. She immediately, noticing the bananas, tries to get them. To her horror, she sees the evil faces of the rest of the monkeys attacking her. After the third attempt, she realized that she could not get a banana. Now remove one of the original five monkeys from the cage and run the new one there. As soon as she tried to get a banana, all the monkeys unanimously attacked her, and the one that was replaced by the first (and even enthusiastically). And so, gradually replacing all the monkeys, you will come to a situation where there will be 5 monkeys in the cage, which were not watered with water at all, but which will not allow anyone to get a banana. Why? Because it is so accepted here …

Tutankhamun was born at Akhenaten in the year 1346BC. He became a Pharaoh at a tender age of nine in the year 1338. He reigned during the 18th Dynasty when the Egyptian Empire was at its
2. Tutankhamun Was Born Tutankheten:
Tutankhamun’s father, Akhenaten wanted the Egyptians to worship just the sun god Aten, instead of their chief deity Amun or any other god. Aten at the end of Akhenaten and Tutankheten signified the same. Tutankheten means ‘living image of Aten’ and Akhenaten means the ‘servant of Aten’. Unfortunately, Akhenaten ‘s changes did not go down well with his subjects. So, when Tutankhamun took over, he changed things back to how they were. He reopened the closed temples, restored the god Amun to his former glory and moved the capital back to Thebes. He even changed his name to Tutankhamun, which means the ‘living image of Amun’.
It is believed that Tutankhamun has married one of his half-sisters. Akhenaten, Tutankhamun’s father, was married to Nefertiti, with whom he had six daughters. Akhenaten also had a second wife, named Kira, who is said to be the mother of Tutankhamun. It is said that Tutankhamun married Ankhesenpaaten, one of the six daughters of Nefertiti and Akhenaten. Confused? So are we!

This book is called «The Wonder». This story was about a boy who studied at home before the fifth grade, because he was born unusual and with many diseases. This became a problem for him, because everyone looked at him strangely, but he had to exceed it. I really liked this book, because it proves that everything is malleable. I think that people who suffer from some kind of illness should read this book in order to understand that they are part of the community, and they should not suffer, they should struggle for life. August, that boy, I think he overcаme these difficulties due to his parents and his friends. His schoolmates helped him, but before they laughed at him. I think everybody must read this book, because it can teach you, that everybody has right to be a part of this wonderful life…
