Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Little Baby Mummy does not want to go to bed. Demanding one more game of "Hide and Shriek," he runs outside to conceal himself in the graveyard, but Mama Mummy doesn't join him. Like the young bird in P. D. Eastman's Are You My Mother? (Random, 1960), he sets off to find her, heading into "the deep, dark woods, the spookery woods" and encountering several creepy creatures: "Clank clink clank/Woo boo woo/Clank clink cloo/'Mama Mummy, is that you?'/But out of the woods clanked—/Bones!" This skeleton, as well as a blob and a vampire—all making their nighttime preparations—greet the mummy and tell him to go to bed. The only time the youngster is truly frightened—by a mouse—his mother is there to comfort him, take him home, and tuck him into bed. The gouache paintings depict the action with humor, and the eerie details and nighttime hues create just the right mood. Well-placed page turns add a bit of suspense. A reassuring offering for youngsters who want just a touch of the shivers.—Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME

WHERE'S MY MUMMY? is the perfect book for the Halloween season.

Baby Mummy, like any small child, doesn't want to go to bed. He asks his Big Mama Mummy for one more game of Hide and Shriek. So while his mama counts, he goes off to hide.

Baby Mummy starts off his game in the cemetery, only to have a visitor come out and tell him to go to bed. Saying he's not scared, he ventures off into other scary places. Baby Mummy meets a variety of scary creatures (perfect for Halloween) without showing any fear.

It's only when the most un-scary creature crosses his path does Baby Mummy call out in fear for his mummy.

WHERE'S MY MUMMY? is a treat for all ages. Most kids will do what they can to get a few more minutes of staying up. Baby Mummy is no exception. The scary folk he encounters during his game of Hide and Shriek are far from scary. The story will entertain children of all ages. With repetitive words through each adventure, small children will be shouting out the phrases in no time!

My 8-year-old son read the story to me with many chuckles along the way, and then my 5-year-old daughter caught on to the repeating words early on to help finish the story. Pick up WHERE'S MY MUMMY? for a frightfully fun read!

This wonderfully written and illustrated book takes you on a tour through the grave yard with baby mummy, where we meet dracula, skeleton and other halloween characters. The rhythm of the story makes it easy for young ones to remember; my son had it memorized after the fourth read. The characters are presented in a fun, non-scary way.
My three year old loves it, and I do too!

This is a fabulous book! It's silly and my first graders love it! We do a whole unit based around this story and mummies. ("Are mummies real?" "Well, yes, but they are not monsters that walk around making scary sounds and trying to get you." It sparked a whole 10-day exploration.) We use it for sequencing, dramatic play, character development, onomatopoeia, story structure, grammar, fantasy vs. realism, summarizing and retelling among other things. It's a simple story, the kids get so into it, and I had to buy 2 more copies just to meet the demand in my classroom! I highly recommend it for any first grade classroom!

My boys love this book, especially my 3.5 year old. He asks for this one all the time at bedtime. Great art style, fun little story. And I love that there are parts that lend themselves nicely to working with him on his letters. We will get to certain parts throughout the book and we'll pause so my son can read off each letter of a line or two on the page and then tell me what it says. I highly recommend this book, it is one of our current favorites for the boys.

This book is very cute. The illustrations are adorable as is the story. I saw it through another retailer for about 3x the price. I was very happy to find it through Amazon. I think my baby will appreciate it more when she's a little older, but I really do think it's very sweet.

Oh my goodness...words can not describe how much my son loves this book. We read it over and over and over, ALL YEAR! Every time we read it my son laughs so hard. Little Mummy isn't scared of vampires or anything....but at the very end he screams when he sees a little mouse. This cracks my son up and it even makes me laugh seeing his reaction, even though we have read it a million times. He has had this book since he was 3 and he is 5 years old now

This adorable read aloud is a nice Halloween-y treat for youngsters. Sweet and silly rhymes combine with wonderful illustrations (that are just creepy enough to be fun but not scary) to create a delightfully spooky story.

This is a wonderful Halloween book for little ones! My three-year old eventually memorized the book and would read it to me before bed. I also read this story to my preschool class and they loved it. The story is very cute and the rhymes are fun for the little ones. Its also the perfect length for a bedtime story.
