Age range 9 to 12 The titles in the Adventures in the Real World series provide in-depth, fast-paced accounts of famous, world-changing voyages and expeditions throughout history, using a mix of easy-to-read text, fact boxes providing historical context, comic strips dramatising significant episodes in the journey and maps of the routes taken to appeal to reluctant readers.

The Tomb of Tutankhamun covers Howard Carter's struggle to locate and unearth the tomb of the boy pharaoh, a discovery that would capture the imagination of the entire world, as well as delving into the life of the ruler in ancient Egypt.

The story is recounted by a mummified cat and a mummified cobra, adding an element of irreverent humour to the retelling.
