Mummies can be pretty scary things when you're a child and worry about the curses attached to them.
Mia's mom works for the museum in her area that's hosting the Egyptian Exhibit of Ramsses II. She's already determined not to go near the exhibit...but then she overhears two women talking about having seen, for themselves, Ramsses rising during the night and there's a whole lot of bone-chilling things going on.
Certain her mother and everyone else at the museum is in danger, she's really upset when no one takes her warnings seriously. With her best friend she decides to camp out over night and catch the great Ramsses rising from his
sarcophagus by taking pictures and videos to prove the Pharaoh is haunting the museum after hours.
There is much to learn in this tale of Ancient Curses and a daughter's determination to rise above her own fear to protect those she loves and is certain are in imminent danger.
THE CURSE OF RAMSSES II is an excellent book for the middle school reader and would make a fantastic supplemental read for anyone teaching English or Ancient history.
FOUR AND A HALF TREMBLING STARS, I,
Ladybug Lin, award this book, and strongly urge
Ms. Victoria Roder to go to her local schools and introduce the teaching staff to her THE CURSE OF RAMSSES II tale. I have a feeling it will become staple for many a future lesson plan.
