Gr 3-5-Presented as a young boy's school report, this slim book combines humor (riddles and comic drawings) with information about the discoveries made in the Valley of the Golden Mummies. The readable text also includes more general facts about mummies. An appropriately gory section about the embalming process also includes a simple project to make a "tomato mummy." Colorful drawings, maps, and photographs of the mummies and archaeologists working at tomb sites are presented on pages resembling linen wrappings. This title is certain to attract youngsters. Delia Pemberton's Egyptian Mummies (Harcourt, 2001) is a more serious, in-depth treatment and a visual delight.-Cynthia M.
