Read full description of the books The Curse of King Tut's Mummy (A Stepping Stone Book):This is a fantastic tale of the discovery of King Tut's tomb. Although it is a true story, it has all the intrigue, drama and suspense of a well-written fiction story. The life-long research about ancient Egyptian architecture, traditions and history along with the frustration of not finding anything for years are conveyed briefly, but with enough detail to tell the whole story. The amazement and satisfaction of finally discovering the tomb is mixed with the sorrow of the death of Lord Carnavon. Based on the title, I wasn't sure if the "curse" would have a prominent role in the story and I was glad that it was debunked as a symptom of media speculation and sensationalism (yes, the media was easily whipped into a blood-frenzy, even 100 years ago!)
Overall, it's an interesting story, that offers a bit of historical background about ancient Egypt and will entertain young readers.
