Mummified children

Mysteries Of The Mummy Kids
by Kelly Milner Halls

Incan sacrificial victims, child ice maidens, murdered bog children, mummy babies, and an eerily lifelike girl named Rosalia are some of the mummies depicted in this enthralling book. Halls offers gentle speculations on their lives and deaths, and interviews a few of the scientists who discovered them. Her writing is a bit dense at times, but persistent readers will be rewarded with interesting details and anecdotes. The excellent cover is a prime attraction, as are the many photos inside.

A very intriguing book.
