Long ago the old texts of ancient Egypt alluded to scrolls in which King Tut spoke to the people from beyond the tomb. Many archaeologists put this down to an incorrect translation of the ancient Egyptian texts. Others swore to the accuracy of the translation. But, Tutankhamen Speaks isn’t a story about the lost scrolls. It’s about the story written down on those ancient scrolls: Tutankhamen’s story.

â€œA delightful way to bring history
â€œWe are using this as resource for
world cultures for home school.â€
â€œWhat I liked about this book was
that it gives a glimpse into the everyday life of Tut, before and after his
rise to Pharaoh. It was like a fly on the wall peek at his life without it just
being part of a much larger plot.â€
â€œAnd what a tale
it is! King Tut tells us his entire life story from when he was a boy and not
yet acknowledged as heir to the throne of Egypt, through his fatherâ€™s death and
his own ascension to the throne; we learn of his love for Ankhesenpaaten, whom
he married, the sadness they experienced at the loss of a child, and the
politics and hierarchy of ancient Egypt with its court intrigue.â€
