Discovering the Tomb of Tutankhamun

by Roger Canavan, Damian Zain
This title in the Adventures in the Real World series provides an in-depth, fast-paced account of ancient Egyptian history, using a mix of easy-to-read text, fact boxes providing historical context, and comic strips dramatizing significant episodes in the journey.

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.

Roger Canavan is an award-winning author of more than 60 books for young readers, covering history, science, and other nonfiction subjects. Regular school visits and science experiments conducted with his three children keep him connected with his wide readership as well as with the latest school curriculum developments.

Damian Zain lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He trained in comic illustration and now works as a freelance artist.
