Stunning photos will have young readers mesmerized in this National Geographic-produced text. Author Sloan does an excellent job in summarizing each mummification process. His succinct prose, which children will easily grasp, makes the subject matter even more fascinating than it already is. These mummies, whether it's the famous Ötzi iceman, twisted bog people, eerie crypt dwellers, or casually-seated chieftain Moimango, are sure to provide hours of engrossed study.
