Mummies at the Museum by Wong Herbert Yee - ADVISABLE

Yee, Wong Herbert Hammy and Gerbee: Mummies at the Museum, 107 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL Christy Ottaviano Books (Henry Holt), 2018. $13. Content: G.  

Gerbee and Hammy are best friends, so they are excited to find out that they are in the same class with Miss Capybara at school.  They are not excited that the twins, Hanna and Anna, are in their class.  When Miss Capybara takes the class on a field trip to see the mummies, Gerbee and Hammy try to play a prank on the twins, but in the end they help catch some thieves.  

This cute graphic novel was a quick read with simple text and basic graphics (blue, black and white).  I enjoyed the story and I think Gerbee and Hammy would be easy characters for elementary age boys to relate to.  The story made me laugh and it was unpredictable and fun.  

EL (K-3) – ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
