Young history buffs and celebrity fanatics alike will enjoy this humorous and irreverent introduction to King Tutankhamun written by Egyptologist and TV presenter Dr Chris Naunton.
Readers hear first-hand from King Tutankhamun how he became the ruler of ancient Egypt at the tender age of nine, and what it was like to be rudely awakened from the afterlife by British Egyptologist Howard Carter in 1922. They’ll endure him bragging about his collection of blingy 18-carat gold sandals, and wonder how to discern fake news from the truth surrounding Tut’s mysteriously premature death.
Naunton’s expert text is accompanied by Guilherme Karsten’s illustrations, giving the boy King a contemporary make-over for celebrity-obsessed readers, and letting children in on all the juicy details of an extraordinary life.
