Book Review: The Secrets of Tutankhamun

THE SECRETS OF TUTANKHAMUN by Patricia Cleveland-Peck tells the story of King Tut and how archaeologists drew conclusions from historical evidence.
This appealing informational picture book is told in three parts. After introducing the key people, the first section of the book takes readers back to Ancient Egypt, the second section explores the archaeological discoveries surrounding King Tut, and the final section speculates on current and future discoveries.
Librarians will find this visually attractive work of nonfiction appeals to a broad audience. By including information about the science of mummification along with the history and archaeology, the book easily crosses multiple interest and curriculum areas.
