Publisher Summary

A captivating picture book biography about Howard Carter, the discoverer of King Tut’s tomb in 1922. Howard Carter was obsessed with mummies. He met his first when he was a boy in England and lived near a mansion filled with Egyptian artifacts. Howard dreamed of discovering a mummy himself—especially a royal mummy in its tomb, complete with all its treasures. When he was seventeen, he took a job with the Egypt Exploration Fund and was sent to Egypt to learn about archaeology and excavation sites. And his mummy hunt was on! Howard discovered many amazing artifacts, but he searched for years before coming upon the most famous mummy of all, King Tut. With stunning artwork from Boris Kulikov, and an informative and funny text from Tracey Fern, Howard and the Mummy is a true story about the challenges of discovery and the rewards of perseverance.
