Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2001 Fall)
Annie and Jack, protagonists of the fictional Mummies in the Morning, serve as tour guides in this overview of ancient Egypt. The succinct text describes the Egyptian culture and presents basic facts about mummies, pyramids, and King Tut. The black-and-white illustrations are adequate; the photographic reproductions of various relics are sometimes murky. The book also contains research tips. Bib., ind.
