What is a mummy? How exactly were they made? Is there really such a thing as a mummy's curse?  And find out why mummies were unwrapped in modern times.

Find out the answers to these questions (and many more!) in this engrossing guide to the mummification process. Filled with grisly detail, you’ll uncover secrets of the embalmers, tales of the tomb robbers, and even what happened when pets were mummified! Meet some famous mummified remains from around the world, from Tutankhamun to the “unlucky mummy,” and find out what happened when archaeologists discovered mummified remains thousands of years after they were buried. And young art historians will appreciate the illustrations of hand-carved sarcophagi, hand-painted inner coffins, gilded burial masks, and the cleverly positioned characters that nod to traditional hieroglyphs and Egyptian friezes.

With a glorious gold foil cover and color illustrations on every page, children aged 7+ will enjoy learning lots more about mummies!
