From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3 Donnelly gives simple details about how King Tutankhamen was buried and the ancient Egyptians beliefs about death. The story then skips ahead to the 1800s, when Howard Carter's frustrating five-year search for Egyptian treasure finally resulted in his discovery of the young pharoah's tomb. Although there's little new information here, these true tales of mummies and ancient treasure in an easy-reader format should prove popular. Ventura and Ceserani's In Search of Tutankhamum (Silver Burdett, 1985) provides a more detailed account of Carter's struggles, and its illustrations are superior to the standard textbook drawings found here. But its nice to see photos of the Egyptian finds included in this book, which will help readers share the excitement that Carter must have felt when his dream of finding an ancient tomb finally came true.

There is an abundance of photographs in this book, covering the artifacts in Tut's tomb, as well as photographs of historical places like the Valley of the Kings, and important figures such as Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon. There are also many illustrations that bring to life the story of ancient Egypt as well as latter day excavation efforts. I ordered several other readers in this series, both Step 4 and 5 titles, and hope that my daughter enjoys reading them all! P.S. The Step 4 readers are described as "reading paragraphs, containing challenging vocabulary, short paragraphs, exciting fiction and non-fiction, and recommended for Grades 2-3", though children who are younger and are at an advanced reading level will find these books interesting and suitably challenging as well.
More than three thousand years ago an uneartly story was beginning.
