I bought this book for my classroom library. My students enjoyed seeing the pictures and learning about the ancient Egyptians. Plus, it was illustrated by the highly-regarded Angus McBride. Well worth the money.

Format: Paperback
Reason for Reading: We've had books from "The Best Book of" series in the house for over a decade. It is a good series. And since we are studying Ancient Egypt right now I pulled this book from the shelf.

This is a short, picture book style book, with large text and a multitude of pictures set up in the usual Kingfisher format of a main narrative text followed by smaller boxes of text under certain illustrations and each illustration is captioned. This book is strictly illustrated except on the last page where two photographs have been used. Set up in two page spreads the book topically uses three such spreads to work in a succinct ordered manner describing the mummy process. First talking about the pharaohs and why they would want to be turned into mummies in the first place, the society and religion, followed by the mummification process, the funeral procession, where and how mummies were stored and with what and finally ending up with robbers, archaeologists and the modern scientific process. A very interesting, well-written and entertaining book for up to about age 11. When we finished reading my son said "Awww, more book?!" It was too short for him.

He's really enjoying this study of ancient Egypt. Up to this point in our reading mummies had of course been discussed with brief details but this is the first time the text got into all the little details and showed the tools, plus including interesting tidbits of information I don't think he'll forget soon.
