Working Mummies

on October 17, 2012 - 8:53pm

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.

Go buy it! Do it! Do it now! Seriously. And while you're waiting for it to be delivered, check out Hypnotikeye (or the Happy Undertaker) for illustrations like the ones posted below.
