Once there was a little mummy who wanted to run away. ?If you run away,? said Mother Mummy, ?I will get you! For you are my rotten little mummy!?

A little mummy transforms into a series of incredible monsters in order to run away and assert his independence. His mother keeps coming to ?get? him, but this little mummy has a mind of his own. Filled with uproarious illustrations, another beloved classic gets a kind-hearted send-up in this utterly monsterized parody. Ener getic art and a hilarious text will have kids begging to read this again and again.
