About this title

Synopsis:

Deep underground in a dreary old tomb, ten little mummies were stuffed in one room. Nothing to play with, no books on the shelves, just ten little mummies wrapped up in themselves. "This is the pits!" said a mummy one day. "I am bored stiff—let’s go outside and play!" Ten little mummies set out for some fun. How many are left, when their day is done? Young readers can count them all in this adorable prehistoric romp through ancient Egypt.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. Ten little mummies, "bored stiff," break out of their tomb for a day of hijinks in this rambunctious counting tale set in Ancient Egypt. Bouncy rhymes filled with painful puns (the mummies are "wrapped up in themselves") tell the story: as the mummies cavort through the desert, sandstorms, chariot races, hippos, and more claim members of the group in a descending countdown that ends with one lonely mummy, who returns to the tomb to discover that her pals have already safely returned. Karas' childlike pencil-and-paint illustrations are a perfect accompaniment to the energetic silliness of Yates' words. A mix of shifting perspectives shows quintessential Egyptian images, such as the Sphinx, and the mummies themselves are irresistible. With wide, expressive cartoon smiles; dot eyes; and spindly stick limbs, the playful mummies will easily pull children into their adventures. An excellent read-aloud, even for youngsters who have already mastered 1 through 10. More facts about ancient Egypt appear on the endpapers. Gillian Engberg
