Synopsis

The Story of Mummies by Penny Clarke

The Story of Mummies is an absorbing account of the amazing human time capsules left behind by the Egyptians and other ancient civilisations. Learn how and why mummies were created, how they were discovered, and what they can tell us about ancient times and distant places. Did you know that there are mummies from Greenland, Scandinavia, the Alps and South America? Stunningly illustrated throughout, with clear text and detailed illustrations, the book provides a perfect introduction to areas of history that can often be daunting for young readers. Witty cartoons, in addition to realistic drawings, make the book entertaining as well as informative. A complete glossary and index make this title an ideal educational tool for both home and school.
