Verity’s old tabby cat, Mabel, might not be quite as lively as she used to be. And yes, she smells a bit, and doesn’t always make it to the litter tray on time. All the same, Verity adores her… not least because she belonged to Verity’s mum, who died in childbirth and whom her dad and grandparents can’t bear to talk about. So when Mabel dies, Verity is devastated. Remembering her lessons about the Ancient Egyptians, she decides to mummify Mabel and keep her forever. But when Verity’s family find out what she’s done, all hell breaks loose – and they realise it’s time to talk at last…
