  • How I Became A Ghost

    Tim Tingle, Steven Walker

    eBook (The RoadRunner Press, Dec. 25, 2013)
    In this first novel for children by internationally renowned Choctaw storyteller Tim Tingle, a ten-year-old boy tells the story of his tribe’s removal from its Mississippi homeland, and how the Choctaws exodus to the American West led him to become a ghost — one able to help those left behind.
  • How I Became a Spy

    Deborah Hopkinson, John Keating, Recorded Books

    Audible Audiobook (Recorded Books, Feb. 12, 2019)
    From the award-winning author of The Great Trouble comes a story of espionage, survival, and friendship during World War II. Bertie Bradshaw never set out to become a spy. He never imagined traipsing around war-torn London, solving ciphers, practicing surveillance, and searching for a traitor to the Allied forces. He certainly never expected that a strong-willed American girl named Eleanor would play Watson to his Holmes (or Holmes to his Watson, depending on who you ask). But when a young woman goes missing, leaving behind a coded notebook, Bertie is determined to solve the mystery. With the help of Eleanor and his friend David, a Jewish refugee - and, of course, his trusty pup, Little Roo - Bertie must decipher the notebook in time to stop a double agent from spilling the biggest secret of all to the Nazis. From the author of The Great Trouble, this suspenseful WWII adventure reminds us that times of war call for bravery, brains, and teamwork, from even the most unlikely heroes.
  • How I Became A Ghost

    Tim Tingle

    Hardcover (The RoadRunner Press, June 18, 2013)
    Told in the words of Isaac, a Choctaw boy who does not survive the Trail of Tears, HOW I BECAME A GHOST is a tale of innocence and resilience in the face of tragedy. From the book's opening line, "Maybe you have never read a book written by a ghost before," the reader is put on notice that this is no normal book. Isaac leads a remarkable foursome of Choctaw comrades: a tough-minded teenage girl, a shape-shifting panther boy, a lovable five-year-old ghost who only wants her mom and dad to be happy, and Isaac s talking dog, Jumper. The first in a trilogy, HOW I BECAME A GHOST thinly disguises an important and oft-overlooked piece of history.
  • How I Became a Mummy

    Leena Pekkalainen

    Paperback (The American University in Cairo Press, March 1, 2017)
    If you thought making an ancient Egyptian mummy was just a matter of wrapping a body in bandages, think again! It was a long, complicated, and sometimes gruesome process. What happened to the intestines, lungs, and other soft inside bits? How did they get the brain out of the skull? What did they use to dry the body out, and how long did that take? These questions and many more are answered here by Mr. Mummific, a king of Egypt who went through it all himself, and ended up a mummy with attitude. A little confused when he first died (but relieved that he no longer had toothache), he needed his own guide to explain things, so it’s lucky that his dead but cheeky son was there to lead him by the hand. Together, they let us in on all the grisly secrets of the embalmers’ tent. Illustrated with eighty colorful scenes from the life, death, and afterlife of the funniest mummy you’ll ever meet, How I Became a Mummy is an icky treat for children and Egyptologists of all ages.
