Synopsis

Avoid Becoming an Incan Mummy by Colin Hynson

You are the Sapa Inca, supreme ruler of one of the greatest empires the world has ever known. As the son of a god, you can never actually die. But sooner or later your body will stop working, and then you will be mummified so you can continue to take part in the daily life of the empire for ever. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like in the heyday of the Inca empire. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
