Discovering the Tomb of Tutankhamun
By Roger Canavan (Author), Damian Zain (Illustrator)
The Tomb of Tutankhamun covers Howard Carter's struggle to locate and unearth the tomb of the boy pharaoh, a discovery that would capture the imagination of the entire world, as well as delving into the life of the ruler in ancient Egypt. 2022 will be the 100th anniversary of this historic event. The story is recounted by a mummified cat and a mummified cobra, adding an element of irreverent humor to the retelling.
