Description: Ever since Howard Carter uncovered King Tutankhamun tomb in 1922, the young pharaoh has become a symbol of the wealth and mystery of ancient Egypt. Now, a two-and-a-half-year-long museum exhibit of Tut treasures is touring major cities in the U.S., drawing record crowds. This Who Was? book is complete with 100 black-and-white illustrations and explains the life and times of this ancient Egyptian ruler, covering the story of the tombs discovery, as well as myths and so-called mummy curses. (112 pgs) Ages 8 -11
Ashay says, "I love the Who Was biography series chapter books. Their colorfully illustrated book covers and size really catches kids attention. (And quite honestly this is one way to get them to pick up a book and read it.) These books are perfect for 3rd - 5th graders and older students who are having difficulty reading. Great for the library and must have for the classroom!"
