Grade 5-7?The story of the discovery of King Tut's tomb is a classic tale of treasure hunting and adventure. This account nicely intermingles details of what is known about the pharaoh and his reign with Howard Carter's amazing rediscovery, in 1922, of the tomb. Full-color and black-and-white photographs show objects described in the text, and a timeline and list of Internet sites provide backup information. Unfortunately, the list for further reading is too short and some of the titles are very old. Readers looking for high drama may prefer Nicholas Reeves's Into the Mummy's Tomb (Scholastic, 1992), in which lively text and numerous illustrations recount the uncovering of the tomb with much more animation. But for a biography of the pharaoh himself, Green's book is a better source.?Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
