Editorial Reviews

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

This is a well researched and well written book. Nice to see children's authors who actually do their homework! Most scholars can't or won't write for children and most children's authors can't or won't do real research. This book is a wonderful exception!

I really liked the adventures of the main character. I didn't like that it was short. I wish it would've been longer. I would recommend it to be read by my classmates and kids around my age (I'm eight).
