Overview

The Mystery of the Mummy's Curse by Gertrude Chandler Warner, Hodges Soileau

Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny used to live alone in a boxcar. Now they have a home with their grandfather, and they’re about to meet a mysterious mummy! The Greenfield Museum is holding a special exhibit all about ancient Egypt, and the main attraction is a 4,000-year-old mummy. The Aldens are helping the museum curator set up the exhibit and learning all about life in ancient Egypt. But ever since the mummy arrived, nothing’s gone right for the museum or its workers. The longer the Aldens are around the mummy, the more things go wrong. As the children search for the cause of all the bad luck, everything points back to the spooky sarcophagus. Has the museum been struck by the curse of an ancient mummy? The Aldens are about to find out, whether they’re ready or not!

About the Author

Gertrude Chandler Warner (1890–1979) was an American author of children’s books, most notably the nineteen original titles in the Boxcar Children Mysteries series. Warner was raised in Putnam, Connecticut, across the street from a railroad station, which later inspired her to write about children living in a boxcar. In 1918, she began what would become a thirty-two-year career teaching first and third grade at the Israel Putnam School. She died in Putnam on August 30, 1979, when she was eighty-nine years old. But the Boxcar Children live on: To this day, talented authors contribute new stories to the series, which now includes over one hundred twenty books.

A good book for the reluctant reader. Each chapter is just the right length and the vocabulary is appropriate. The story line is not too complex and paced just right. Even though written "a long time ago," it is still interesting for today's young readers. An adventure is at hand!
