A Mummy Ate My Homework by Thiago de Moraes

A Mummy Ate My Homework is the first book in a fun new time-travel adventure series by Thiago de Moraes, the incredibly creative author and illustrator of The Myth Atlas.  11 year-old Henry loves school and learning. He thinks the summer holidays are boring and he can’t wait to get back to finding out new things – he just never imagined his education would become so REAL! The new school year starts out ordinarily enough but then, suddenly, he finds himself falling through a strange vortex into a world full of A LOT of sand, people in unusual clothing, chariots and dangerous snakes! He realises that he isn’t in his own time anymore – he’s in Ancient Egypt!

As Henry tries to make sense of Egyptian life, he makes new friends and learns all sorts of interesting facts. History is presented in a fascinating way as readers are taken on an adventure involving the art of war, hunting, geometry, astronomy, chariot driving, potions, the after life and, of course, hieroglyphics. With peculiar words, exciting twists and laugh-out-loud moments, this book will definitely entertain and educate!

Thank you to Scholastic for this fun book! It will be published in August 2020.
