Have you read The Curse of King Tut’s Mummy? Well if you haven’t, the book is about a young man who’s named Samuel Carter. He discovered King Tut’s mummy. He figured out the Egyptian mummy had a curse on it from an evil and mysterious pharaoh.
My favorite part was when the snake swore he would kill the man, and the man screamed like a little girl. It was very funny. This book is special because you can learn a lot about Egypt. I even learned about sandstorms. I felt like I was learning a lot about Egyptology. I know more about how Egypt was formed after reading this book. My favorite character was the Egyptologist, Samuel Carter, I learned a lot from his adventures.
This is the perfect book to read if you want to learn about Egypt. The author really helps you to visualize what Egypt looks like. I highly recommend this book to students in grades 2nd – 8th. It’s full of action, excitement, and you can also learn some things about Egypt by reading it.
