T Egyptians rather than bury the poor old thing she decides to mummify her so they can be together forever But what with the problems involved in finding the mummification materials and the fact that Gran would probably fuss about hygiene if she knew anything about it things don't uite go as plann. REVIEW AIMED AT PARENTSLet's be clear I only read this book at age 23 because I'm learning a new language Swedish and picked this one up at a bookstore in Stockholm Why not pick something up traditionally Swedish Because I was familiar with JW in English she's a favourite that I read until I was older than I care to admit Also the book was dead cheap cheaper than anything else available I now see why A second uestion I see you thinking If you read this in Swedish why aren't you reviewing this in Swedish Well first of all if I could write as fluently in Swedish as I can in English you clearly wouldn't find me reading children's books would you Secondly I am writing this review as a disclaimer for anyone looking for an honest and not nostalgia driven review of The Cat Mummy for which I would imagine British mummies see what I did there are likely the searching publicSo essentially I hated this book I'm 23 and honestly I almost had nightmares myself because of it Granted the title is self explanatory but I didn't actually think that Verity would keep and hide the rotting cat in her closet for twohree days I swear the way this whole thing reads I was literally gagging and just marched bravely on because I've since moved away from Sweden and it'll take me weeks to order and receive a better book I hated the entire experienceIn essence call me crazy but I think this is a woefully inappropriate book for younglings I understand the idea of needing something to help explain the concept of death to them and that everyone reacts differently but trust me The Cat Mummy is not the answer It's kind of like one of those uestions that don't need an answer to like is murder bad or can i stab aunty If the child needs to ask you've already got a problem If the child doesn't have this kind of problem why add weird disturbing imagery to their mind Because the The Cat Mummy certainly was disturbing It isn't just about Verity fantasying of mummies or whatever She actually prepares the corpse by pouring salt to preserve it imagine that with your child and an ACTUAL pet and get an idea of how disturbed it is Granted she does it wrong in childlike innocence but stilll She keeps the cat in the closet for days and sticks her hand in to hold it even when its smelling so putrid that it stinks her entire room and clothes Want to teach a child about loss There are about 10000 better resources than this I'm sorry Hard pass

The Cat Mummy review Ï 104 ☆ Verity's old tabby cat Mabel might not be uite as lively as she used to be and yes she smells a bit and doesn't always make it to the litter tray on time but she really loves her More importantly Mabel once belonged to Verity's mum not that Verity actually ever knew her mum because she died She really doesn't mind too much aAlly doesn't mind too much about not having a mum apart from when she goes to visit her grave which makes her think about being in the ground with a head full of worms So when she finds Mabel dead in the wardrobe it seems to Verity that it would be much better to take a few lessons from the ancien. This book was very touching Verity really loves Mabel and what she does with her then is disgusting I don't want to say what she did because I don't want to ruin it for other readers Mabel is so sweet and what happens is very sad
