Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cherie Ilg Haas
A casual voice and funny cartoon drawings combine together to teach young readers all about mummies in this lighthearted book. It describes mummies and mummification in ways that the readers will truly appreciate, along with macabre and shocking facts. The pictures show sarcastic images that fit well with the writing—such as in the later 1800s when people would dig up buried bodies because of unpaid taxes, only to discover the bodies and been naturally mummified and were then put on exhibit in a museum. However crude, each page has fascinating facts that will peak readers' curiosity for further research. Because of the middle reading level, everything is kept relatively simple. The bonus to this is that it is likely to spur readers into finding out more about the interesting stories and statistics held in each of the four chapters. This title is Station Stop 3 of the "All Aboard Reading Series." Reviewer: Cherie Ilg Haas
