Working Mummies

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Get ready for giggles and ghouls in this celebration of hard-working mommies who also happen to be mummies. Here you’ll find a doctor mum curing raspy spooks with coffin syrup and a fang-filling dentist completely wrapped up in her dangerous work. You’ll also meet a librarian mummy who has her hands full with book worms, a writer mum conjuring spells for readers, and many others. With visual and verbal puns galore, this scream of a book helps illuminate the mysterious world where so many mommies disappear every day—and may also explain why some of them come home slightly unravelled. 

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 30, 2012 – Horton keeps up the momentum behind the pun in her title with smooth, four-line verses in this vividly illustrated guide to mummy professions. A mummy doctor checks the throats/ Of spooks with raspy moans,/ Then doses them with coffin syrup/ To soothe their frightful groans. A six-armed mummy realtor doesn t shy from selling haunted houses, and mummy caterers deliver plates of eyeballs and worms to a gathering of drooling beasts. Kozjan delivers a menagerie of monsters and cadaverous creatures, rendered in fluorescent fuchsia, orange, and green, with originality and scares on every page. Ages 3 up. Illustrator s agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties.
