REVIEWS

Praise for Kingfisher Knowledge: Mummies

Children's Literature

Stunning photographs and digital artwork along with the text take the reader through a wealth of information...Both the text and documents make this an exceptionally good book that should be useful at all levels of interest.

School Library Journal
Although similar to the "Eyewitness" books (DK) in layout, these series entries have more text and a cleaner design to provide more in-depth coverage. A colorful and accessible resource.
