Book Overview

Reading paragraphs In 1991, two tourists hiking in the Alps saw something very odd sticking out of the snow. At first it looked like a doll's head. But it wasn't. It was a man, frozen in the ice for 5,000 years. Ice Mummy --first published by Random House in 1998--tells the story of this amazing discovery, from the struggle to remove the mummy from his icy grave to the creation of his final resting place: a specially designed refrigeration chamber...

The Mummy Returns (not the movie)

I Think the 5,000 year old Mummy is very good discovery. I never knew that there could be a Mummy in the alps or any other extremely cold moutain area. (I was just plain dumb about that). I Think that this book about the Ice Mummy is very good to learn about. (Besides King Tutankahamun). The Mummy, i realized can be almost anywhere, but not the USA. You can learn from this discovery, many of you.

Ice Mummy the ice mummy

the ice mummymy favorite chapter in ice mummy is chapter 6, time traveler. i savor that chapter because it tells about how he died and where he died . i believe the age group is 9 and up. one reason i think that is because it shows stuff little kids should not be able to see or read about. i enjoyed the book because it was interesting to read about. it also had the tools that the ice mummy had with him when he died. the people in the book tried to figure out how the ice mummy was killed in the book. the ice mummy is not up to date because the book was made in 1998. the ice mummy video was made in 2001. the book says that the ice mummy died from freezing to death. in the movie it says that he was shot in the back by a man who must have been mad at him.

Ice Mummy

Ice Mummy by : Mark Dubowski The Ice Mummy is an excellent book . It is appropriate for everyone at all ages 3 and up because it is good that kids can learn about mummy. I like chapter 2 because it has really good and it has great pictures . It is a superior book i f you like any kind of mummy. I like the book use it is good and I like any kind of mummy. Yes the movie of the Ice mummy is up to date, but the book Ice Mummy is not up to date So the movie is but the book is not.

Fascinating book for a mummy fan

I bought this book for my son when he became fascinated by mummies at the age of 4. He enjoyed my reading it to him and now (at age 7) can read the book by himself. It is interesting to learn about mummies outside Egypt and that there are alternative forms of mummification from embalming. It is thought provoking for a child to imagine what life was like for this person before he died and was mummified, and to learn about the scientific process of discover.

Excellent early science reader

I was extremely impressed with the way this book dealt with the subject matter. Unlike a previous review, I thought it included enough detail to be understood by young readers and so the significance of this find could be appreciated. I also disagree that the photos were "morbid". The major strength of this book is it's remarkable photographs. My nine-year old was fascinated by both the photos and the story. Seeing how well preserved the mummy is makes this story even more amazing. This is a well-written book that can be enjoyed by all ages.
