Making Mummies, Shrinking Heads and Other Useful Skills by Pat Murphy


Making Mummies, Shrinking Heads and Other Useful Skills by Pat Murphy

Kids can journey back to Ancient Egypt to learn the secrets of mummification by embalming a hot dog in an easy-to-assemble sarcophagus. The hieroglyphic curse-o-matic wheel creates warning signs for trespassers into tombs (or even bedrooms) of doom. Also includes instructions on carving shrinking heads from apples. Possibly the most out-there Klutz book yet - the perfect gift for the Halloween season.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
