Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Rubel's perky characters and cool colors jazz up these punny jokes in an easy reader. The riddles run from very silly to not-so-bad-with good lines about Lake "Eerie", the "Dead" Sea and anything Egyptian. Mummy and daddy will have to do some explaining which makes this a surprise teaching tool.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5--With riddles such as "What did the mummy say when he got angry with the skeleton? `I have a bone to pick with you,'" this lively collection of puns and jokes is likely to be frightfully popular both as a read aloud and read alone and is more accessible for less advanced readers than Dave Ross's Mummy Madness (Watts, 1979; o.p.). Rubel's brightly colored cartoon mummies have an amazing range of facial expressions. Is that a mummified Rotten Ralph on the title page? Both librarians and teachers will want to use Mummy Riddles to wrap up a book talk or a unit on ancient Egypt, and it's dead certain to tickle the funny bones of newly independent readers.--Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
