This book is great! It's about ancient Egypt and there mummies. They tell you how they mummify them, why they built mummies, and much more. It also talks about how and where they buried regular people. So far, this is one of the best non-fiction books I ever read! So I highly recommend reading this book, especially if you what to learn about Egyptian Mummies.
