You ruled Egypt for a brief but turbulent period, 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 encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like to have this famous boy-king whose death is so much more famous than his achievements in life. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title and ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers. It fits into Key Stage 2 History and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5 -14.
