Reviews for A Mummy for Owen
True Story-Viewing Tie-in
My grandchildren call me Mama, and I ordered this book because of the title, for no other reason (note some discrepancies between book title and image) . BUT I received Mummy For Owen (Book Depository dealt with the problem very professionally). However, on flicking through the book I found out it is a true tale, and have actually found plenty on you tube about this amazing animal relationship.
I particularly liked this one:
So it was a great tie in to combine the book with the viewing, as a bonding activity with my young grandchildren. So, despite being a "mistake" it has turned out to be a favourite! Delightful tale and illustrations-I recommend it. by Wendy SEKULOFF
