THE CURSE OF KING TUT’S MUMMY by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld
Released: Jan. 23, 2007

"The illustrations are unlikely to carry as much visual interest as the photos and images of golden artifacts in the likes of Giovanni Caselli's In Search of Tutankhamen: The Discovery of a King's Tomb (1999) or Zahi A. Hawass's Tutankhamen: The Mystery of the Boy King (2005). (Nonfiction. 9-11)"
Adding a light dusting of invented detail, Zoehfeld retraces the course of Howard Carter's youth and career to its dramatic high point, mentions the "curse" in a single brief, dismissive passage, then closes with a note on modern investigations into the causes of King Tut's early death.
