Outside and Inside Mummies
by Sandra Markle

Did you know that mummies aren't just something we made up to scare people on Halloween? They really don't walk around cemeteries with their clothes hanging in shreds trying to find an innocent kid like you to jump out and scare.

No, mummies were once real live people like you, except some of the best mummies were pharaohs or ancient kings. Before they died, they had their slaves build enormous pyramids. Then, after they died, their bodies were mummified. Thousands of years later, researchers and scientists discovered the mummies and had a lot of questions about them. But the mummies couldn't talk to answer the questions! So the scientists thought they might find clues hidden in and around the mummies' bodies.

Would you like to know who these mummies really were? Would you like to know how scientists discovered clues without having to cut into the bodies? Would you like to see real mummies? If you would, you will love reading Outside and Inside Mummies by Sandra Markle.
