Six chapters provide information about different types of mummies in this slim volume. The chapters include: The Iceman, Bodies That Don’t Decay, King Tut, Victims of Vesuvius, Tolland Man, and The Ice Maiden. Some of the bodies were accidentally mummified due to certain conditions, while others were purposefully preserved for their journey to the afterlife.

The reader is given a snapshot of each individual’s life and culture as well as how each mummy was discovered. Illustrations also accompany each story; some are close-up photos which show details such as dried eyeballs, tattooed skin, or facial hair. These illustrations are gruesome, yet fascinating.

Each chapter cites its sources which are included in the chapter notes in the back of the book. The book concludes with a brief glossary of terms, further reading and internet addresses, and an index.

This book serves as a good introduction to different types of mummies and may motivate young readers to learn more about mummies in general or delve deeper into the stories behind the specific mummies profiled.
