With pretty illustrations on simulated papyrus paper, this simplified story of King Tut's childhood and rise to power may be a fun way to introduce the culture of ancient Egypt to very young readers. It is a very simplified story and does not offer any biographical notes or references. I would only use as a fun read for young children. I did use it as an example to my 5th graders on how they could write their own stories about an ancient culture. ( )
