The mummy's curse?A gold moon rose beyond the cliffs and lured the robbers from their lair, as sunset's last light bled upon the sacred desert grave site where the boy king, Tutankhamen, lay surrounded by his treasure hoard, protected by a curse, some say, as dangerous as a sharpened sword. Thus begins the strange unfolding of events encompassing one of the most remarkable archaeological discoveries of the twentieth century -- the tomb of King Tutankhamen. The breathtaking combination of John Frank's narrative poem and Tom Pohrt's illustrations brings a new dimension of suspense and excitement to this astonishing true story.
