Wandering Educators note: We were so pleased to learn about the debut novel from Dr. Leslie Schweitzer Miller – a New York City psychiatrist, fine artist, and author.

When you think of a mummy, you probably think of Egypt. Or maybe you think of the Hollywood movie The Mummy, starring Brendon Fraser. But what if you were to discover that there are actual mummified animals laid to rest alongside their ancient Egyptian masters?
