I Am the Mummy Heb-Nefert

I Am the Mummy Heb-Nefert

by Eve Bunting Illustrated by David Christiana
Clad in flowing linen robes, adorned with jewels, pampered by servants, Heb-Nefert led a life of leisure and joy with her royal husband on the banks of the Nile. Now she lies, a mummy, encased in glass in a museum, and recalls the days of long ago. "A mummy's moving soliloquy on youth, love and the fleeting nature of life is the centerpiece of this hauntingly beautiful picture book."--"Publishers Weekly"
