Synopsis

Mummies Melted, Dried, Salted, Smoked, Frozen, Stuffed, Tanned, Wrapped, and Tattooed and We're Dead Serious! by Christopher Sloan

The world's coolest mummies make for fascinating eye candy on the pages of this thrilling and chilling new book. Whether it's the tattooed mummy of Peru, the bog people of Europe, ancient Egypt's cat and crocodile mummies, or King Tut, National Geographic photographs allow readers to get up close and personal with these creepy blasts from the past. The text explores these people's mysterious deaths and what the mummies reveal about ancient cultures. Short chapters will each feature a large, colour photograph of a mummy, the story behind each mummy, fun facts, and a map. Whether kids read this book in the classroom or for pleasure, they will learn about culture, science, and geography while freaky photos keep them glued to the page.
