You Wouldn't Want To Be Tutankhamun!
You are Tutankhamun, ruler of Egypt for a brief but turbulent period. You oversaw a national change in religion and then died mysteriously at only 19 years old. Since your body was first examined experts have been unable to agree how you died, and you have been blamed for a ‘mummy’s curse’ that sought revenge on those who disturbed your eternal rest.
The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach placing readers at the centre of the narrative history encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like as Tutankhamun. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
