Freak Street: Meet the Mummysons product reviews

The Mummysons are just your average, everyday family. Yes, they have a pet mummified fish and live in an Egyptian pyramid. Yes, Milo Mummyson is studying moths - the one thing deadly to mummies. Yes, Muriel Mummyson is making plans to build the ultimate pyramid play park. Yes, their dad is obsessed with creating a delicious Sphinx Drinx, if only it didn't stink. And yes, something is destroying Freak Street park, while families are trying to picnic.

But that's nothing out of the ordinary, right?

We haven't read any of the Freak Street books before but when this book came up for review I just knew I had to give it a go. I'm always looking for new and exciting books for my son (7.5 years) and a book about a family of mummies definitely seemed to fit the bill.

Meet the Mummysons follows a family of mummies who live on Freak Street along with a bunch of other interesting characters - the Vampiresons, Humansons, Piratesons, Wizardsons, just to name a few! The book mainly focuses on Muriel Mummyson who wants to build an Egyptian play park and Mr Mummyson and his smelly brand of drinks - both have their work cut out for them.

The book is full of bright and bold cartoon illustrations with different coloured pages which while they are very eye catching, it does make some of the text difficult to read. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments, lots of action and interesting twists to keep little people entertained. I'm not the biggest fan of the writing style but then it's not a book for my age group and my son certainly seemed to enjoy it.

After reading this book, my son is keen to meet some of the other quirky families that live on Freak Street so it's definitely a winner in our house.

Product reviews for listing 3395: The Crying of Lot 49 -  Written by Thomas Pynchon

Product image for The Crying of Lot 49Suffused with rich satire, chaotic brilliance, verbal turbulence and wild humour, "The Crying of Lot 49" opens as Oedipa Maas discovers that she has been made executrix of a former lover's estate.

The performance of her duties sets her on a strange trail of detection, in which bizarre characters crowd in to help or confuse her. But gradually, death, drugs, madness and marriage combine to leave Oedipa in isolation on the threshold of revelation, awaiting "The Crying of Lot 49".

This is one of Pynchon's shortest novels and one of his best.
