This review is from: Tutankhamen Speaks (Tales & Legends for Reluctant Readers) (Kindle Edition)
When I read the blurb for this story, I was immediately intrigued. I was a History Major in college and have had a special interest in all things ancient Egypt from the time I was a child. Going in, I was immediately confused. According to the blurb, it is about some missing scrolls that told of a time when the Pharaoh Tutankhamen spoke to others from beyond the grave. The scrolls were said to be found again in 2011 hidden in a basement room in the Cairo Museum by an Egyptian scholar, S.L. Wood who then deciphered most of the text, the parts that hadn’t been destroyed by time and he sent his findings to the author for publishing.
When I started reading it was about the young Pharaoh at the age of six. He has just seen an elephant for the first time and found out that his father has a private zoo... I loved reading the brief history of the boy king told from his perspective, the mixture of facts with fiction so that it blends seamlessly, and the fact that Mrs. Carpinello actually used the fact that he died due to injuries resulting in a chariot accident, instead of some of the rumors that have been spread since the discovery of his tomb.
