Popular author Tony Johnston's second novel follows a mummy boy from the pyramids of Egypt to a famous museum in New York City as he searches for his mummy mom in this clever, funny book.
A young mummy boy named Ramose is awakened one day by the sound of graverobbers invading his home--the pharoah's tomb. They've stolen his mother (who's also a mummy) and now it's up to Ramose to find her. With the help of a cranky talking camel and some young American tourists, Ramose finds himself en route to NYC--home of an important museum and its famous collection of mummies. Full of offbeat, witty scenes, this is a fresh and original novel with great appeal.
Johnston's ANY SMALL GOODNESS also recently received the Judy Lopez Honor Book Award.
