At age nine, Tutankhamen became pharaoh, ruler of Egypt. His most important act was to reestablish his people’s religion of multiple gods. Before age twenty, he was dead. For over three thousand years, Egypt’s desert sand hid the tomb of Tutankhamen, and Egyptians forgot about the ancient king. Then, in 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter found a door buried in the sand. It led to the greatest ancient Egyptian treasure ever found. Tutankhamen didn’t have time to become a great pharaoh, but his tomb is a modern treasure—but not just for its gold and jewels, but for the stories it holds about ancient Egypt.

Born as “Tutankhaten, King Tut is remembered for many reasons. During his reign as Pharaoh he made the difficult decision to publically disagree with his father and to undo many of the changes that Amenhotep IV had made during his rule (including making Amarna the capital city). Tutankhaten would also try to reestablish the friendships with surrounding nations that his father had ignored and to start a large family of his own so that his ideas could continue to guide the country long after he had died. But the life of Tutankhaten was very complicated. It seems that as a young king he was used by the people around him, specifically some very powerful advisors who took advantage of the fact that he was just a child. They probably convinced the king to do the things that they themselves wanted him to do. You may know King Tut’s name, but perhaps you've wondered, "What's so great about him?” This book (part of the “What’s So Great About…”) series, gives kids insight into life, times and career of King Tut.

Brimming with vivid historical detail, King Tut and the Girl Who Loved Him is a thrilling tale of a modern teenager catapulted into the glory and intrigue of Egypt's 18th Dynasty. Johanna Wilson is a quick-thinking fifteen-year-old with a penchant for falling into trouble and digging her way out again. After a rough day at school, Johanna comes home, eager for a nice, relaxing evening. But while reading a book on ancient Egypt, she's suddenly "misplaced" from her apartment in twenty-first century Miami to Egypt's 18th Dynasty. A few strange twists of fate later, Johanna is masquerading as Princess Johenaten, cousin to Pharaoh Tutankhamun and member of Egypt's royal family. Completely dependent on the pharaoh for her safety and comfort, she also knows from her high school history class that the king will die soon. And when he does, her life will be in jeopardy. Johanna's search for answers to the pharaoh's fate takes her on a dangerous journey into the inner circle of the most powerful kingdom on Earth. Surrounded by treachery and deceit, Johanna vows to uncover the threat to Pharaoh Tutankhamun's life, scarcely realizing how her actions will change the lives of those around her-and the course of history.

This story takes place deep in the GreatForestwhere people are rarely seen. The inhabitants of this land called Bug-A-Boosmay be bothered from time to time by animals like lizards or bears but most of the time the bugs who live in this story go about thenown business of getting food, building homes or arguing or fighting with each other. Bug A- Boos is a community much like the ones people create, although on a much smaller Ralph the Drone is the main character in this story. He is an unusual bee because he is not simply a worker bee; he is a thinking bee who is concerned over threats to the well being of all of the bugs. It was that characteristic which got Ralph in trouble because he openly disagreed with a plan for handling a drought which was announced by the Monarch, the leader of all the bugs. Ralph found himself banished to the land of the fire ants for daring to suggest a better approach. This proved to be fortunate because Ralph and two friends who joined him, Milllie the Moth and Chuck the Chub, overheard the fire ant''s leader,General G, planning an attackBug-A-Boosand recommended a way to counter the attack. The plan worked and the fire ants were turned back. Ralph was still held in disdain, however. The leader of the fire ants, General G, was not the type of bug that would give up easily. He also vowed to get even with Ralph the Drone and made a pact with the evil Ann Mantis to capture Ralph. She was more than pleased to help General G because of her long standing hate of Ralph. When Ralph is captured by the fire ants, it appears the peaceful community of Boosand its incompetent leader, the Monarch, will at last fall prey to the fire ants.
