Creepy Egyptian Mummies by David Stewart

From 'Ginger', the earliest known Egyptian mummy, through the young pharaoh Tutankhamun, up to the truly terrifying 'Screaming Mummy', Top Ten Worst Creepy Egyptian Mummies You Wouldn't Want To Meet explores some the most gruesome mummies in the history of Egyptology. The book also looks at the lives and cultures of the Ancient Egyptians, examining how, why, when and where they mummified their dead for the journey to the afterlife. The Top Ten Worst series counts down the ghastliest ghoulies, the most petrifying pirates, the angriest animals, the nastiest natural disasters, and much, much more! Colourful and humourous illustrations accompany the terrifying text, which features information on how to survive everything from the worst volcanic eruption to the world's deadliest animal. Each title explores the facts and the science behind each subject as well as looking at their impact on the world at large. Topics and subjects are put in a geographical and historical context so the reader can breathe a sigh of relief if the threat is very old or far away. Captions and speech bubbles bring the illustrations to life while 'Vital Statistics' fact boxes fill you in on all the details.All titles feature a full glossary and index, which back up the scientific and historical information found within the books.
