The Mummy's Curse: A time-travelling adventure to discover the secrets of Tutankhamun - The Butterfly Club
Would you risk the future to change the past?
Greenwich, London, 1894.
Luna, Konstantin and Aidan are time-travelling thieves, stealing artefacts from the future to bring progress forward. And they are about to venture on their most treacherous mission.
For The Butterfly Club have their eyes on a shiny new prize. In Egypt's Valley of the Kings a man named Howard Carter will stumble upon an unimaginable treasure - Tutankhamun's mummy: the greatest archaeological discovery of all time.
The three children are given an impossible task: travel to 1922 and uncover the mummy first.
But when the time-thieves disturb Tutankhamun's long sleep they wake something else too - a deadly and ancient curse. And now they must face the terrifying consequences of their actions...
I thoroughly enjoyed this exciting mix of fact and fiction with its curses and archaeology, mummies, tomb-raiding and historical figures such as Howard Carter. This is a clever and engaging read - an intriguing book for readers Y5+ for fans of history that want a bit more action than a straightforward non-fiction fact book may provide!
