S.C.R.E.A.M. – The Mummy’s Revenge is a spooky story by Andrew Beasly. It is about two children, a boy and a girl, who solve supernatural cases. If you’re wondering, S.C.R.E.A.M. stands for “Supernatural Crimes, Rescues, Emergencies And Mysteries”. The case in this book is about a mummy risen up from its tomb, and lots of robberies are happening. The mummy’s dream is to become immortal. S.C.R.E.A.M. is part of the London Police, and nobody is better at fighting supernatural crimes than them. The book is set around Victorian times, with gas lamps and stuff.
There are lots of supernatural, squishy, scary things happening. The book describes everything just right, so you can picture everything in your head really well. My personal favourite character was Charley. Charley is part of S.C.R.E.A.M. and an extraordinary scientist – she is really clever.
This book is a really good book, and I would recommend it to anybody who likes crime novels. It’s actually a series, and I would like to read the next one. I think the age range would be 9 to about 15, and there were bits I didn’t want to read just before going to bed.
My name is Toby, and I am 9 years old. I have written letters to every country in the world - you can read about that adventure at my other website, Writing to the World. Some letters are published in a book called "Dear World, How Are You?". In order to learn more about the countries I am writing to, I am reading books, and I am reviewing them here. I also reviewed books for LoveReading4Kids, and those reviews are on here, too. I am trying to find one book set in each country, or by an author from that country. My Mum is doing the same for grown-up books, and I am reviewing mine, and she is reviewing hers. So whether you are a child or a grown-up, you can explore the world with us :)
