    My 7 year old nephew chose this book for me to read to him before bedtime So, since I didn t read to him every single day, it took us a while to finish, but we finally finished today.This story is very sweet and has so many messages Andy s mother passed away when he was young His father did the best he could to raise him as a single father That is until he found Marie and re married Marie seemed nice, the bad thing is that she brought her son, Jason, or Mr Know it all blue ribbon for everything, the same age as Andy The good thing about his father and Marie s marriage is Winks, his baby sister, whom he loves Andy has always wanted to know about his real mother, but his dad never wants to talk about her Andy always saw himself as average, or below average living with such a genius When their fifth grade classes decide to do a unit on Ancient Egypt and visit the museum to see a real mummy something unexpected happens As he s visiting the exhibit, he gets a funny feeling when he leans over the case to see the mummy All of a sudden, he is magnificent and whatever he wishes seems to come true Andy must use the wishes wisely and learn how to accept not only his new family, but himself as well.I have to admit, I teared up a couple of times reading this book when Andy was talking about his mom My nephew probably didn t really get that part since he was falling asleep most of the times I read him the story Either way, I loved this book and am glad he picked it to read together.

    I listened to this on audiobook The narrator did a nice job It was solid The plot was cheesy and simple but it did remind me of books that I d read as a kid Unfortunately, while this book appears to look like a horror novel it is definitely not This was the main reason I picked it up It s of a heartwarming tale of adolescence I enjoyed it but probably would ve liked it if it was closer to a Point horror book lol.

    I recently took a road trip with my kids and we listened to this audio book on the way It was great one of the quietest trips we had ever done Every time a disc finished, the kids begged for the next one as they were so engrossed in the story.The story is cute, it is about a ten year old boy named Andy, whose mother died when he was a baby and whose father has remarried His new step mother comes with a new step brother, also a ten year old boy, but one who is good at doing everything he sets his mind to, unlike Andy Andy is average, not gifted like his step brother, Jason He feels left out and lonely and he misses his mom.Woodruff does a good job here, exploring the feelings that kids of blended families would feel, all of the mixed up emotions, resentments and assumptions I can really imagine the kids feeling and acting the way that she presents and this would probably be comforting for kids who are in similar situations or who feel sibling rivalry even without the blended family part.There is also a great fantasy element to the book, with Andy channeling the spirit of the mummy This part is a bit spooky and mysterious and adds a fun tension to the book I love the imagination the author uses here and how it is used to ultimately resolve the story.I can see middle grade kids really enjoying this book, especially if they have an interest in mythology.

    According to the insert at the back of the book, Elvira Woodruff was inspired to write The Magnificent Mummy Maker based on an actual school project mummy she had seen on one of her many classroom appearances The real mummy was made by a pair of girls but in the novel it s done by Andy who wants one chance at doing something better than his step brother, Jason aka Mr Genius.The Magnificent Mummy Maker has the same theme of competition between siblings of blended families as Yours Turly Shirley Of the two, Andy s relations with Jason and their younger half sister strikes me as realistic than that of Shirley and Jackie Woodruff gives each family member a chance to voice his or her feelings and perspectives which makes for a interesting and believable story.Mummy Maker isn t just a story of sibling rivalry, it also has a strong fantasy element The mummy that Andy draws in school is inspired by the mummy of a priestess the class sees in the local museum After seeing her, Andy believes that her ka has entered his body and has started to grant him wishes Through these wishes Andy and Jason learn to be better brothers and to appreciate their family situation.

    My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause If your local I encourage you to check them out For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place And if not, you can always help start one.http Myself, I go out on the weekends andshop thrift store and bulk book lots to rescue books and donate them Sometimes I ll find a book I remember reading when I was young and will read it again before passing it on.I don t rate these books using my normal scale, instead I give most of them three stars This isn t a Criticism of the book, simply my way of rating them as good for children.

    Drawn in by the promise of some Egyptian lore, I picked this up A great story that revolves around a blended family and the rivalry between the two same aged boys One an overachiever and the other and underachiever The project for school is about ancient Egypt The overachiever steals the step brother s idea and everything he touchs always turns to prize winning gold But will it this time On the class s field trip to the museum, the mummy s spirit seem to enter the underachiever and he produces the most amazing paper replica of the mummy So good it ends up making him the center of attention from both students and teachers Finally, he is the prize winner This does not sit well with the previously center of attention brother and he realized that this attention comes with a price The mummy also comes with an ability to have wishes granted, but only so many If you make one too many wishes, you will be left in despair What to wish for Did he wish for the right thing
