Description: Award-winning and critically acclaimed author Candace Fleming presents the edge-of-your-seat true story of the searchfor Tutankhamun's tomb, the Western public's belief that the digwas cursed, and the battle for ownership of the treasures within. During the reign of the New Kingdom of Egypt, the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun ruled and died tragically young. In order to send himon his way into the afterlife, his tomb was filled with every treasurehe would need after death. And then, it was lost to time,buried in the sands of the Valley of the Kings. His tomb was also said to be cursed. Centuries later, as Egypt-mania gripped Europe, two Brits -a rich earl with a habit for gambling and a disreputable, determinedarcheologist - worked for years to rediscover and open Tutankhamun's tomb. But once it was uncovered, would ancient powers take their revengefor disturbing and even looting the pharaoh's resting place? What else could explain the mysterious illnesses, accidents anddeaths that began once it was found? With black-and-white photos throughout!.

Review: Candance Fleming never disappoints. I inhaled this book over two afternoons. The story of discovering Tutankamen is iconic but I found the backstory of Howard Carter fascinating as well. I liked the way the author sprinkled teasers about the Mummy's Curse throughout the book. Informative and engaging, this is a great historical read for middle-grade readers on up. I bought multiple copies for my middle school classroom and my students have really enjoyed them! If you liked her book, Amelia Lost: The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart, you'll love this one too. GREAT storytelling!

Review: It reads quite well, but all of the photos are black and white. Color would make it much better.
