Where's My Mummy?
I guess it's a mummy theme. Where's My Mummy?, by Carolyn Crimi and illustrated by John Manders, is one of Maya's new favorites.
Little Baby Mummy wants to play hide-and-seek instead of going to bed. So he "tromped, tromped, tromped to the deep, dark woods, the spookery woods..." At each turn he hears scary noises. "Clank clink clank Woo boo woo Clank clink CLOO"
Each time it's a familiar face who tells Little Baby Mummy to get on home because it's dangerous out in the dark woods.
Finally he comes upon a truly frightening creature. A mouse. Luckily Moma Mummy is there.
Lots of great sounds. Even glubbing and gurgling.
Here's Maya raiding her loot. We of course ate her candy, but not before she mushed it up for an hour. Does etiquette dictate that we trade our candy for our neighbors', knowing that we'd be eating theirs? Ah, never mind.
She's a frog, BTW.
