I loved Meg and Mog so I thought I'd give Meg's Mummy a go.

Meg and Mog inexplicably decide to visit Egypt, Mog falls off a pyramid and thus gets wrapped in bandages, Mog gets mistaken for a mummy cat and everything ends well.

I suppose the bit that I like is the cultural references - the mummy is named Ptolemy - proably

The mummy is named Ptolemy - the famous Egyptian astronomer and geographer. Ptolemy in the book is claimed to be 3000 years old - about 1000 years older than the real Ptolemy. Also the real Ptolemy lived in an Egypt ruled by Romans - so there were no pharaohs and no mummies created while the real Ptolemy lived. Also Ptolemy is a Greek name
