When that well-known archaeologist and little-known poet, Cairo Jim, and his friends Doris the Macaw, Brenda the Wonder Camel, and Jocelyn Osgood make the "find of the century", a new enemy on the scene sets out to discredit Jim and destroy his hard-won reputation.Another mind-blowing mystery of history from the master of archaeological humor and suspense, Geoffrey McSkimming.More
Performing his own work, Geoffrey MacSkimming uses a wry, nimble delivery in this latest installment of his Cairo Jim series.
In Cairo Jim and the Secret Sepulchre of the Sphinx, the world-famous archaeologist (and "little-known poet") discovers a diary that promises the "Greatest of the Great" wonder of the world. On this quest for his next great discovery, Jim is accompanied by his partner, Jocelyn Osgood, and his loyal animal friends, Doris the macaw and Brenda the Wonder Camel.
MacSkimming imbues his performance with suspense and deliciously colorful character voices (especially Doris the macaw). In a book that’s chock full of adventure and pun-filled humor, the author makes his performance both suspenseful and fun.
"Grab your pith helmet and join Cairo Jim on a rollicking adventure sure to tickle the funny bone of young and old alike." (AudioFile)
