Comments for The Runaway Mummy

The Runaway Mummy: 02/11/12

 cover art (Rexk goes to Powells)The Runaway Mummy is another Margaret Wise Brown parody by Michael Rex. This time he's taking a jab at The Runaway Bunny which you might recall is the story of a small bunny being suffocated by his over protective, obsessive mother. The bunny does everything in its power to escape. Can you tell, I'm not a fan the original?

Now I like mummies and I like parodies. So this book was a win for me at the get-go. The runaway mummy turns himself into all sorts of gruesome things to scare off his mother but she just keeps one-upping him.

For children who are fans of monsters, this book is sure to be a hit. It's not too scary but has plenty to fuel their active imaginations.

Five stars.
