When three mummies from ancient Egypt are transported to a museum, the truck crashes, most of the treasure is burnt, except a boy-mummie.
That mummy, later named Dummie, is alive, and runs to the bed of a boy(Goos). After a complicated acquaintance, they become friends. Goos and his father decide Dummie can live with them. They learn to know each other, and Goos and his father explain to Dummie how things work in the modern western world. Most problems begin when Dummie go to school with Goos, where nobody may know Dummie Is a Mummy. After many little daily schooladventures things develop the way they, and the readers, want.

The book is funny, hilarious, creative and has nice, and less nice, realistic characters and types. Imagine how you can live with a clever, child with a dry skin, that reeks, who can't get wet. Who can't live without his golden scarab, who is fond of buttons of electric gear, who reacts on infidelity with aggressive anger, but is very helpful and a nice playmate to a boy without siblings. I like it! ( )

Hilarious. Feels like reading a book by Roald Dahl or Paul van Loon. ( )

Voor mijn lieve vriendje Erik
First words
Het was stil in het paleis.
( en van Hoofdstuk 1: Goos Guts maakte de gekste dingen mee.)
Dummies huid was zo bruin als poep. Het was droog met barsten erin en het stond strak over zijn botten.
'Maar je moet ook stilzitten en opletten.Ook als je het niet verstaat. 'Leuk!',zei Dummie. 'En ze vinden je misschien raar.'Leuk! Leuk!' Hij vond alles leuk. Klaas had gelijk. Dummie wilde gewoon graag naar school.
Dummie stak zijn armen in de lucht en begon te draaien.Hij trok een grijns en ging sneller. En nog sneller. 'Maashi! Maashi! riep hij. 'Ho niet zo snel! wacht nou even' , riep Klaas. Máááshii! Dummie maakte een pirouette, wankelde en botste tegen de tafel. Hij viel, greep om zich heen en trok het tafelkleed met fruitschaal en al over zich heen. "Whaah! ik zie donker!' gilde hij.
Er was geen twijfel mogelijk. dat was de scarabee van Mukatagara. 'Plofzak Drollemans!"riep Klaas. 'Bomkak Dinges!' riep Goos. Vliegensvlug lazen ze het artikel.
