Find out all you need to know about mummies. What is a mummy? Where do they come from? Where can you see them? Is there really a mummy's curse? Get the facts. Then read a scary story about the mummy that came back to life: 'The Walking Horror'.
This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
David Orme has written over 200 books including poetry collections, fiction, non-fiction, and school text books. When he is not writing books he travels around the country giving readings, and running writing workshops and courses.
