Yuck! According to this grisly/gross-out compendium by a first-time author, M is for Mummy (""A rotting smell seeps in the room/ as Mummies stagger from their tomb"") and E is for ""Eyeballs lined up by the sink."" Manders renders the malicious details in keenly observed watercolor-and-gouache panels. Ages 6-9. (Sept.)
