Haunted Beans!

Do you know why the ancient Greeks didn't eat beans? Because they thought beans contained the souls of the dead. That's true! I learned that tidbit when I did the art for My Weird School Fast Facts: Mummies, Myths, and Mysteries by Dan Gutman. It's a pretty fun book that breaks all my personal rules about the idea that books and learning and fun could all coexist in a 185 page bundle of weirdness.
