About the Book



Award-winning author Marcus Ewert and best-selling illustrator Lisa Brown bring an ancient Egyptian feline to life in a mummy love story that includes a story-within-a-story hieroglyphic tale and informative author's note. Perfect for cat lovers, young Egyptologists, and Halloween promotions.



Book Synopsis



Deep within this maze of stone,
a creature wakes up, all alone . . .

Mummy Cat prowls his pyramid home, longing for his beloved owner. As he roams the tomb, lavish murals above his head display scenes of the cat with his young Egyptian queen, creating a story-within-a-story about the events of centuries past. Hidden hieroglyphs deepen the tale and are explained in an informative author's note.
Marcus Ewert and Lisa Brown's smart, beautiful book is a marvel of sophisticated simplicity, infinitely engaging to examine in detail, and complete with a sweetly surprising plot twist sure to delight young cat-lovers and budding Egyptologists alike.
