Audible Editor Reviews

Cairo Jim is a charming adventure series for kids, written and narrated by Australian children’s novelist and poet Geoffrey McSkimming.

In this rollicking tale, Cairo Jim Amidst the Petticoats Arms, our hero archeologist, Cairo Jim, and his two friends - who happen to be a macaw and a camel - unearth an ancient relic in a long-forgotten and crumbling city. The magical, cryptic artifact may possess secret powers which can be abused if one's intentions are less than noble. Thankfully, lovable Cairo Jim and his resourceful animal pals will do their bumbling best not to let that happen.

"When you tire of stories about the places and people you know, try the witty word play and over-the-top adventure of Cairo Jim for an outrageous tonic." (The Age)
