The other day I wrote about an unexpected visitor with a package for me. This is one of the books that was inside.
It's called Working Mummies illustrated by Drazen Kozjan and written by Joan Horton.
I've only had a few spare, quiet moments to read through it a number of times (love it!), my eyes trying to take in all the Halloween goodness, but it ticks all the right boxes for me: great images, strong female characters, and well written rhymes.
The book explores the different jobs of Mummies in the monster world, like Writers, Teachers, Dentists and even Real Estate Mummies:
"Other mums sell houses.
They're not the least bit daunted
By buyers who insist upon
Old dwellings that are haunted."
It's a great book for boys and girls (and adults) alike. It's available on Amazon for just under $10 and would make the perfect Halloween, birthday or Christmas gift for anyone who loves Halloween. And their Mummies.
