The Mummy Returns Book Review

The Mummy Returns Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

John Whitmans The Mummy Returns Junior Novel rocks! Its like Ancient Egyptian Plays of the Day meets Where the Heck Is Carmen Santiego. It has all the action of the flick without the sticky floor.

Author: John Whitman

(Based on the motion picture screenplay by Stephen Sommers)


"I hate mummies!" grumbled adventurer Rick O'Connell. And ya know, after O'Connell's last trek into mummydom, I'm pretty much there with him. The Mummy, the first in the sandy series, is like a nasty birthday present. Once you got through all the layers of wrapping, there was nothing but dust inside. I can't comment on The Mummy Returns movie 'cause I haven't seen it (and probably won't,) but The Mummy Returns Junior Novel rocks! It's like Ancient Egyptian Plays of the Day meets Where the Heck Is Carmen Santiego. All the action of the flick without the sticky floor, stale popcorn and previews for Beethoven's 10th.


HIGHLITE REEL: It's been 10 years - Rick and Evelyn, now knee deep in wedded bliss as well as sand, son Alex, and wacky ol' Uncle Jonathan, race the recently-risen Imhotep and his new crew to the resting place of the Scorpion King. You can bet the S King is gonna wake up on the wrong side of the tomb. Right? Whatever, The Mummy Returns Junior Novel is a great source of essential carnage and gore, as well as, providing 100 percent of your recommended daily intake of fun.


Rating:4

If you'd like to find out how to make mummies, where all the best pharaohs are buried and what really made Imhotep tick, pick up The Mummy Returns Scrapbook. But I suggest you read the novel first. Let your imagination build the Island Temple of Philae before you see how Hollywood did.

The Mummy Returns Rating: 4

    Kawaii Chan P.O.V Kawaii waited at the bus stop after leaving the house, only just hearing what Katelyn said, she was tempted to go back and finish the cupcake... No, she had to see Zane. The bus came and she went in "where you goin' today sugar?" Kawaii Chan smiled at the man "kawaii Chan is going to the hospital" she said, giving the man a few dollars "please take a seat" kawaii Chan nodded as the bus driver tipped his hat at her, and they started up the road Zane P.O.V Zane felt the wheel chair go over a bump and into the air-conditioned hospital, he shivered, hearing doctors speak, kids crying and adults grunting, groaning and moaning made him nervous, thinking he had to look proper, he sat up straight, instantly regretting it, his back cracked and the nurse laughed "you know, you don't have to be fancy to be at a hospital, right?" Zane sighed "well it sure felt that way" the nurse laughed again, not responding though, then he heard running footsteps behind him, slightly screaming, then a voice "Zane kun!" He realised who it was, "k-kawaii Chan?" Kawaii Chan laughed "of course it's kawaii Chan, silly!" He bit his lip "okay.." he felt himself going over another bump, probably his hospital room, "uh, Zane, you'll need to get up to get on the bed, though you can't see, you think you'll be alright?" Zane shook his head "no" someone took his hand "kawaii Chan can help!" He realised kawaii Chan holding his hand, but he knew he was okay, it was kawaii Chan, he would be safe with her, he realised he was muttering "miss, you're blushing, are you alright?" The nurse said, and kawaii Chan giggled "I'm okay"
