Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With the same level of enthusiasm that animates her Tales of the Cryptids (2006), Halls presents a gallery of mummified children. They range from one mummy discovered near Chile's Camarones Valley--at roughly 7000 years old, the most ancient human mummy known--to an unidentified Washington, D.C., teenager found in an elaborate Civil War-era casket in 2005. Along with a generous selection of rousing, eerie color photos, the author offers sensitive speculations about these once-living children's lives and deaths, interviews with scientists and mummy hunters, and telling details, such as the fact that King Tut's body was literally ripped apart to extract the valuables secreted in its wrappings. Closing with a visit to a modern embalmer and exemplary multimedia resource lists, this will keep readers rapt (so to speak) from cover to cover. --John Peters Copyright 2007 Booklist"
