Description More Information
It is 1924, two years after the discovery of King Tut's tomb, Will Hunt and his family become part of an archaeological team led by world-famous Egyptologist Dr. George Reisner.

Based on actual records of Reisner's history-making dig, this original picture book uses journal entries, postcards, and cartoons to pull readers into an ancient unsolved mystery.

One of the aspects of the book that I found most interesting is that the reader is encouraged to come up with their own theory to try to solve the actual 5000-year-old mystery. Given a set of clues and using the information and facts that have been presented in the book the young readers find themselves participating in the detective work before they are presented with Dr. Reisner's theory as well as an alternative theory proposed by a modern archaeologist using modern techniques and technology.

After reading this book you may find yourself with a budding archaeological detective of your own!
