Hilarious book. The child that received it loved it. Quick delivery.

My 4year old son LOVED this book when we borrowed it from our library. He memorized ever type of mummification and even gave a book report about it at a talent show. It was one of his requests from Santa and I'm so pleased that Amazon had it. Very graphic and informative.

Here is a book so attention-grabbing it will literally fly off the shelves. Written in a kid-friendly style, and containing a plethora of fabulous photographs, there is just enough enjoyable gruesomeness here without becoming gross or disturbing. Having been dried, sealed, drained, frozen, embalmed, stuffed, wrapped and smoked, mummies are now demystified in lively text and graphics. From the Desert Child of Chile (5050 BC) to the corpse of Vladimir Putin (1924), all the major finds, as well as the lesser known, have been included. For example: The Ice Man, the Bog bodies of Denmark (many of whom met a very grisly fate), King Tut, the Warrior Woman of Peru, and some celebrity mummies reach out to us from the past. And in the Capuchin catacombs of Sicily "about 1,800 lifelike bodies hang on the walls, sit on benches, and lean casually, as if they're waiting for the bus." Mysteries are unraveled as tales unfold. Technical information about each mummification process is also included, bringing those processes alive. Author Chris Sloan has more than lived up to National Geographic standards in this accessible and visually stunning book. He ends with a note: "This book was produced out of a real passion for mummies. I want the world to see them not as odd curiosities, but as real people who lived in the past and have much to tell us. Until mummies are better understood, many will continue to suffer damage from neglect." After reading MUMMIES, young readers will have a better awareness of the science underpinning this fascinating field, as well as enjoying the thrill of having read something slightly "shocking."
