John Whitman's The Mummy Returns Junior Novel rocks! It's 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

    Best Time to Read a Book?

    • In the summer when I'm not in school.
    • Only when my teacher assigns a book report.
    • Any time's a good time to read.
    • When all my fave shows are re-runs.

    Hmm... from my perspective, it appears just maybe he may like you. Although it's likely you are just in the friend zone with him. It's undetermined for me, but is it okay if I ask you a few questions? :3
