Peter Crisp has written more than 60 books, many about the ancient world. His books include DK's Alexander the Great, Christopher Columbus, and Secret Worlds Code Breakers and Explorers.From Booklist:
Gr. 4-8. DK's familiar combination of cross-sections, photos, drawings, and captions gives the effect of walking through a museum exhibit in this lavishly illustrated title. Traditionally rendered illustrations mix with computer graphics and transparent pages that allow the reader to peal away layers to reveal the inside of Tutankhamen's coffin (including the mummy's remains), an Egyptian work boat, and the great temple Abu Simbel. Each spread covers a different topic about life on the Nile, such as rulers and gods, warriors, notions of beauty, craftsmanship, methods of writing, techniques for building tombs, and mummification. The lively text includes a brief, exciting account of archaeologist Howard Carter's discovery of King Tutankhamen's tomb. Full of information, this versatile book offers plenty of report material, as well as an appealing format for browsers. Helen Rosenberg
