School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-6-Pyramids introduces structures in ancient Egypt, Africa, Cambodia, and Mexico and is full of large, colorful photos and illustrations. Nardo covers the life of King Tut and devotes a chapter to speculation as to how he died, as well as the discovery of his tomb and its contents. Beautiful, colorful photographs and reproductions round out the nicely prepared text. Underwood discusses the geography, history, and people of Easter Island and of the statues, including who made them, how they were constructed, and what they represent. The last chapter includes information about their restoration and conservation. The illustrations include many full-page, full-color photographs and maps. A diagram shows how the Moai statues were moved from the quarry to the platform. Attractive, readable choices for general interest and reports.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C.
