When the pharoahs of Egypt died, they were mummified and buried in pyramids and tombs with all their riches. But as centuries passed, the tombs were looted and the pharoahs' gold stolen. Then Howard Carter found the greatest Egyptian treasure trove of all—the tomb of King Tut's mummy! But did the amazing treasure come with a deadly curse?

He's fond of animals, cartoons, books, chocolate, robots, movies, monsters, music and, of course, drawing. He is not fond of lima beans. Jim has a lifelong interest in ancient civilizations, but he has never discovered a tomb nor, to his knowledge, has he been cursed.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—Zoehfeld presents the exciting story of Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of Egypt's boy-king, beginning with Carter's childhood in England. As a young man and a painter, he had the opportunity to visit Egypt, where he worked closely with and learned from archaeologists. He went on to become Chief Inspector for Antiquities and, contrary to popular belief, was convinced that there was still at least one more pharaoh to be discovered in the Valley of the Kings. He was introduced to Lord Carnarvon, and the rest is amazing history. This beginning chapter book vividly describes how Carter's determination led to one of the most exciting discoveries of all time. It presents the facts objectively, and the story of the curse is downplayed, noting, "the stories of the curses were all made up." This book will appeal to young readers in search of true adventure.—Carole Phillips, Greenacres Elementary School, Scarsdale, NY
