“A cat who moves without a breath: a mummy cat, who’s passed through death.”
Mummy Cat loved his owner Hat-shup-set more than anything else. However that was all in the past. Currently, Mummy Cat is a mummy himself, roaming alone in the pyramid where his human was laid to rest. Recounting fond memories of what’s really important in life and the bond they shared, Mummy Cat waits for his lonely time to be over.
Mummy Cat is a book that approaches the harsh topic of death in a gentle and educational manner. Told through historical fact (with a twist of fiction) it tells a beautiful story about love and friendship that’s easy to identify with. While not its’ intended purpose, Mummy Cat is also an opportunity to open a dialog between parent and child about the basic concepts of this life-changing event that affects us all. A brief overview in the back reveals how mummies were made and their importance in ancient Egyptian culture, along with a hieroglyph search and guide. Mummy Cat is a multifaceted book for several reasons, and a sweet tale for any age to enjoy.
