Scream Street 3: Heart of the Mummy Paperback
Part of the Scream Street series
Scream Street has been shrouded in constant night for as long as the residents can remember, but when the streets become covered with millions of crawling spiders, suffocating everything in their path with their thick webbing, the residents realize they've had it easy up until now!
Meanwhile Luke and his friends are searching for the third relic of the founding fathers, the heart of an ancient mummy, in their quest to return Luke's parents to the real world.
Matters are further complicated when Cleo's mother turns up out of the blue, having been supposedly lost at sea and missing for many centuries.
Luke becomes suspicious, wondering if there's more to Cleo's mummy than meets the eye - but can he persuade Cleo and her father to believe him before it's too late?

Review by Rhinoa
The first 3 books in the Scream Street series introduce us to the main characters Luke Watson (werewolf), Resus Negative (vampire) and Chloe Farr (mummy tomboy). Luke was a normal boy growing up with his parents when one day his whole family are transported into Scream Street by the mysterious Government Housing of Unusual Lifeforms (G.H.O.U.L.) movers. There Luke makes friends reluctantly while trying to find a way to go back home. He begins to settle in, but his human parents are having a very difficult time getting used to the strange characters and their supernatural abilities. Luke and his two friends set out on a quest to regain all the original artefacts of the towns founders. In the first book they much find a fang of the original vampire, the second a vial of the witches blood and in the third the heart of the mummy who founded the town. They are guided by an author who trapped himself in his own book and are chased at every step in their journey by evil landlord Otto Sneer. These are a fun read and can be enjoyed by older readers too. The illustrations are great and it have just the right amount of bite in them. It looks like another great children's Liverpool (go scousers!) writer is on the scene.
