School Library Journal - H.H. Henderson; Heritage Middle School

"In this hi/lo dose of zombie mummies, 10-year-old girls who visit the new Mayan Mummy exhibit at the Metropolitan History Museum are mysteriously disappearing all over town. Fifth-grader Maya Naranjo and her friend Will Perez discover a connection between the museum visits and the unsettling disappearances and devise a plan to investigate. Maya pretends to succumb to the mummy's trance and "sleepwalks" to the museum where she is almost captured by the malevolent ruler of Chichen Itza, who is posing as a security guard. Maya is able to free the mummy's spirit and the missing girls are returned to their families. Prothero's humorous black-and-white illustrations provide comic pauses during tense scenes, a plus for readers who are just delving into horror. Savvy readers will see the holes in the plot and may be frustrated by the unresolved explanation of the mysterious security guard but striving readers will feel triumphant for having conquered a chapter book and a new genre." - School Library Journal

"A new exhibit has opened at the museum – an exhibit with a Mayan mummy. Now girls are disappearing in the night. What’s happening to them? Maya and her friend Will decide to find out, when they realize that Maya may be the next victim. Stone Arch Books are high-interest, low-vocabulary stories that teens wouldn’t mind being seen with, or that would work with elementary students. This is actually a kind of fun story, and a really fast read. The black and white illustrations add a nice touch. While not fabulous literature, it certainly would appeal to the target audience. (Additional, up to library standards, buy if there is a need.)" - Puget Sound Council
