Synopsis

Discoverology: Tutankhamun's Tomb by Jen Green, Julie Renee Anderson

Accompany Howard Carter on his 1920s expedition to the Valley of the Kings, and witness the incredible discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. As Carter unearths each room in the tomb, the fabulous treasures and Tutankhamun's mummy itself, we get an amazing insight into the life and beliefs of this famous boy king and his kingdom. Fabulous pop ups, pull-tabs and paper engineered wizardry throughout, give a unique 3D experience as you learn all about the secrets and treasures of Ancient Egypt.

Reviews

It's a very physical book - you want to delve into the layers of shrine and unwrap the mummified corpse as you turn the pages - and the information is provided alongside the images and novelties in easily-accessible chunks of text. The book covers a huge amount - from Ancient Egyptian gods and the process of mummification to hieroglyphics and the Rosetta Stone, to objects from everyday life - but it never feels overwhelming, rather like something you want to delve into and explore. Reading Zone Tutankhamun's Tomb, pop-up style. It is quite amazing what can be made to pop-up, and tombs and dead kings are no exception. Book Witch
