Back Cover: Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life is a funny, fast-paced novel for young readers by P.J. Hoover which chronicles the mischievous adventures of King Tut, now an immortal eighth-grader living in Washington, D.C. You’d think it would be great being an Egyptian demigod, but if King Tut has to sit through eighth grade one more time, he’ll mummify himself. Granted the gift of immortality by the godsor is it a curse?Tut has been stuck in middle school for ages. Even worse, evil General Horemheb, the man who killed Tut’s father and whom Tut imprisoned in a tomb for three thousand years, is out and after him. The general is in league with the Cult of Set, a bunch of guys who worship one of the scariest gods of the Egyptian pantheonSet, the god of Chaos. The General and the Cult of Set have plans for Tut… and if Tut doesn’t find a way to keep out of their clutches, he’ll never make it to the afterworld alive.
This is a pre-teen novel for the ages of 7 to 12. But I loved it…This is a Great book to start your child in to the joy of reading. Move over Harry Potter, Tut is here. The fast moving action will keep you glued to the book. If you love Egyptian mythology, and are a history buff you will enjoy this book. I did. This is a five star book. ~~ CLD
