In this 16th title, Cairo Jim and his friends set out to save King Midas' daughter and stop Captain Neptune F. Bone's greedy pursuit of the world's total gold resources.More
Geoffrey McSkimming mixes, history, mythology, geography, and humor in his 16th Cairo Jim story, sending the well-known archaeologist and less-renowned poet from his home in the Valley of the Hairdressers. Jim and friends have to work quickly to derail Captain Neptune F. Bone’s greedy plan to snatch up all the world’s gold. McSkimming’s quirky performance of this high-spirited, humorous adventure celebrates each twist, with Bone himself being on something of a "wild goose chase", as he seeks a young Greek woman who he believes will be his link with the mythological "Midas touch".
