July 2015

Yuya was a powerful courtier during Ancient Egypt’s Eighteenth Dynasty in the fourteenth century BC.  The discovery of his tomb in 1905 was a major world event, overshadowed only by the discovery of King Tut in 1905.  In this gorgeous book, illustrated in painstaking detail by artist and Egypt scholar Tamara Bower, Yuya is brought to life — or more accurately, brought to death.  Ipy is the son of the royal embalmer, and he watches as his father prepares Yuya’s mummy for his voyage into the afterlife.  Full of marvelous details on life, death, and art in Ancient Egypt, The Mummy-Makers of Egypt is the first children’s book on mummies to be written from the embalmers’ perspective, and the first to feature the gorgeous, authentically Egyptian-style art of Tamara Bower.
