In this sixth book, Alexander’s class goes on a field trip to the history museum. The students have been learning about the legend of the bumpy mummy in class. But then Alexander thinks he sees the REAL bumpy mummy walking around! The famous Ruby Scorpion gets stolen from the museum, too! And what are those strange popping noises?! Alexander and his friends will have to work fast to stop Stermont’s latest monster!

{My thoughts} – Alexander and his friends receive some empty striped boxes that only contain bubble wrap. Although it is strange to them, they all seem to disregard it. The next day they go to school and all take their empty boxes with to help with packing up the school, since they are moving to a new building. Finally they will be able to go to school in a real school as opposed to the old hospital that they were currently going to. It’s strange for sure but it adds to the interest factor of the series. I am for sure gonna miss that particular setting.

Once, they have the school all packed up they have the start of summer field trip at a local museum. While they are there they end up encountering a Bubble Wrap Warrior. Apparently the Bubble Wrap Warrior is our for revenge because it doesn’t like how the bubbles on bubble wrap are all popped and then tossed aside. So it decides, that instead of keeping things safe it is going to help things disappear. It also decides that it will make a theft at the museum.

It is up to Alexander and his pals to figure out what is going on and to stop it before it is too late. There is so much that happens within the pages of this book, that it is going to leave you in awe! It was a nice read and l look forward to reading more books in the series in the future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
