Comments for Mummies in the Morning (Magic Tree House #3)

Mummies in the Morning (Magic Tree House #3) cover art (Link goes to Powells)Mummies in the Morning (Magic Tree House #3): 04/27/10

Mummies in the Morning is the third book in the Magic Tree House series. Jack and Annie still don't know who owns the tree house but they're getting a better idea on how to control its magic. This time they are lured to ancient Egypt by a mau.

I have mixed feelings about Mummies in the Morning. I like Jack and Annie experience some Egyptian magic and that the mummy isn't a monster. On the other hand, their adventures through secret passages and the way the mummy's burial is described is grossly simplified.

If this were a later book in the series, the mummy would be from a specific time in Egyptian history and would have her story grounded more firmly in facts. I don't know if Jack and Annie ever go back to Egypt but I would be interested in reading such a book if it exists.
