In his book How I Became a Mummy, Mr Mummific told how he died and was mummified. Now that's all done, and it is time to reach for the Afterlife.
Don't expect it to be smooth sailing - even if Mr Mummific has secured his ticket to the great sunship, the Ship of Millions that carries the sun - and the recently dead people - through the twelve caves of the underworld on its journey to the sunrise, and the Afterlife.
"Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr. Mummific, the mummy with attitude. Having described his death and long mummification process in his last book, How I Became a Mummy, he now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings, and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and hazardous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions. The dangers he faces along the way (and desperately hopes to avoid) include being left hanging upside-down from the cavern ceiling, being swallowed (and vomited out again) by a giant serpent, or becoming a tasty morsel for the hideous Eater of the Dead.
Once again, the pompous and frequently perplexed former pharaoh is our entertaining guide to some of the traditions and beliefs of the ancient Egyptians. Illustrated with eighty colorful scenes from the deathly existence of the funniest mummy you'll ever meet, Mummies, Monsters, and the Ship of Millions is a further ghastly treat for children and Egyptologists of all ages."
