Mummiesby Iqbal Hussain, Two-Can, Andrew Peters (Illustrator), Andrew Peters (Other)
Unwrap the mysteries of mummies! Discover when, why, and where (it wasn't just in Egypt!) people where mummified. Learn step-by-step how embalmers in ancient Egypt removed and preserved the inner organs (including the brain!) and wrapped the body in linen in a process that took 15 days. (And it wasn't limited to people--crocodiles, falcons, bulls, and cats were all wrapped-up too!) Tour the richest tombs and find out about the curses that haunted those who disturbed them. Visit a modern-day lab and see the advanced technology that can determine almost everything about a mummy--even hair color and any diseases it had! All of this and more can be done through the rich and colorful pages of Totally Weird Mummies!
