Junior Review: Bab Sharkey and the Animal Mummies: The Weird Beard

Bab Sharkey and the Animal Mummies - The Weird Beard, is a weird and wacky story.

It follows the life of Bab Sharkey, a young 12 year old boy who finds a 4000 year old stinky beard. The inheritance of this beard crowns him as the Pharaoh of Egypt. However, there are others who want the beard for themselves. 

This book is a creative, fun and overall hilarious story. I would thoroughly recommend it for children aged 8 to 12.   

This book is the first in an ongoing series and I look forward to reading the next one! (keep an eye out for our exciting Cover Reveal of Book Two later this month! Editor.)

One thing I can say for certain about this book…. It’s just a whole of fun!
