Has a mummy’s spirit really moved into Andy’s body?!

What do you do when it seems like everyone in your family has done something magnificent—everyone, that is, except you? That’s Andy’s problem. He just wants to do something special. 

When his class visits an Egyptian exhibit, he figures it’ll be just another field trip. But he’s wrong, because somehow a mummy’s spirit seems to have given him a weird magic power. Suddenly, Andy’s magnificent—all he has to do is wish for whatever he wants! But being extraordinary has its drawbacks. And Andy soon learns to be very, very careful of what he wishes for.

About the Author
Author Elvira Woodruff

Elvira Woodruff based the relationship between the characters Lucy and Glory on the close bond she had with her own two sisters while she was growing up. And as she sat in her study, in the company of an antique doll who watched wisely from the top shelf, she also drew inspiration from her love of dolls and history.

Ms. Woodruff is the author many popular middle-grade novels, including The Orphan of Ellis Island, The Magnificent Mummy Maker, Dear Levi, George Washington’s Socks, and a recent picture book, The Memory Coat, illustrated by Michael Dooling. Her books have won many awards and honors. And the hundreds of letters she receives from children she visits at schools each year keep her excited about writing. She lives in Martin’s Creek, Pennsylvania, where she keeps a garden that is filled with morning glories.

Elvira Woodruff’s trademark style of making history accessible by combining compelling stories with intriguing characters makes her a hands-down favorite with contemporary readers. She lives in Martin’s Creek, Pennsylvania, with her husband Joe.
