Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-7. Stunning photographs and clear, compelling text introduce the burial area of the Egyptian rulers. Beginning with the thrilling discovery of King Tut's tomb, relayed in detailed anecdotes that convey the time-consuming complexity of an archeological dig, the book continues through other valley finds, introducing a few of the major rulers and their relationships, as well as speculation on the political scandals that surrounded some burials. Particularly notable are the finely reproduced photos of gleaming artifacts and the archival shots from the digs themselves. Most terms are defined in text, although a glossary would have been a useful addition. Well-marked maps, time lines, and illustrations depicting the imagined daily life of the tomb builders round out a fascinating historical resource that kids will read straight through for pleasure and also find useful for report writing. --Gillian Engberg"
