Tony Lightspeed is always bringing home sick and injured animals, so when he turns up with an unconscious man dressed from head to tie in rather stinky bandages, his family aren't too surprised. But then they discover that the man is an ancient Egyptian pharaoh named Sennapod, who has been dead for over 4,000 years. Brought back to life by two dastardly grave robbers, Sennapod is on the run. Can he persuade the Lightspeeds to help him?
Jeremy Strong is immensely popular with children, particularly boys, who love his unique brand of silliness. He won the Children's Book Award in 1997 with The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog, and his books about Sigurd the Viking were made into a TV serial.
