A Mummy Ate My Homework

Book Synopsis

A peril-packed, crocodile-crammed, fun-filled adventure through ancient Egypt! Being whisked back to 1300 BC certainly wasn’t on Henry’s to-do list.

Can he make his way through a new school, odd sports, unexpected friends and deadly pets, Egyptian style?

And will he ever find his way back to the present day?

Laugh-out-loud pictures on every page, a riotously funny story, and cool hieroglyphics to crack from talented author-illustrator Thiago de Moraes, author of Myth Atlas.

Our Review Panel says...

A Mummy Ate My Homework is full of interesting facts woven into a fun, action-packed time travel story set in Ancient Egypt. The book is heavily illustrated in an engaging mix of styles – including comic strips, maps and full page spreads. Every page is a delight to turn for curious minds, with anticipation of what you might encounter next!

The book is a winning combination for reluctant readers and those who enjoy fact-finding in a story. Bonus activities at the end include hieroglyphic codes to crack. Being A5, it’s also a nice size to hold. Fans of other illustrated chapter books, like Pugs of the Frozen North by Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve, will love this. Ideal for Y3 onwards.
