With the same themes as a well-known story, a little mummy is sent to his grandmothers house to drop off some things before he is allowed to go trick-or-treating. As he is walking through the woods, something spooky is lurking in the woods. Little mummy becomes scared and you have to read the story to find out the ending!

This is a cute book that is good to read for entertaining purposes. The story is very similar to Little Red Riding Hood and would be a great comparison book.

An activity that I would consider doing is making a compare and contrast chart between Little Red Riding Hood and Skeleton Meets the Mummy. ( )

Skeleton takes a soup to his grandma for his mom. He runs in to many scary things in the dark. Then he runs into a mummy who chases him. The mummy turns out to be his friend Derek the skeleton. ( )

The skeleton's name is Sammy and he's heading out on Halloween night to go trick-or-treating but first his mom is making him deliver a thermos of soup to his grandma. Of course the closest path goes through the woods and Sammy gets a bit creeped out along the way. When a mummy shuffles into view, Sammy starts running as fast as possible! The mummy starts chasing him and eventually Sammy decides to do the only thing that stops a mummy -- unwrap him. The result is quite cute!

We love this one a bunch. We both love the drawings and the story is scary and cute at the same time. I think that books like this are great for younger kids because they get to experience a little bit of fright and then are shown that there's nothing to be afraid of after all.
