Audible Editor Reviews

Cairo Jim is an often eccentric and delightfully funny adventure series for kids, written and narrated by Australian children’s novelist and poet Geoffrey McSkimming.

In Cairo Jim and the Rorting of Rameses’ Regalia, our awkward and fumbling archaeologist hero with a heart of gold, Cairo Jim, and his best bud animal pals, a macaw and a camel, make another amazing ancient artifact discovery. This time, they find dark, enigmatic hieroglyphics that could be instructions on how to unleash a most magical power. Things get much more suspenseful and whimsical from there.

Publisher's Summary

Young listeners will be captivated by this entertaining mix of history, mystery and unique characters. In a dark, long-forgotten antechamber in the Temple of Harthor, an astonishing hieroglyphic discovery has been made! What have the hieroglyphs got to do with the legendary Transilient Scepter of Rameses? Is it true that this dust-smothered ancient scepter could possibly have the astounding powers attributed to it? Will this power once again see the light of day in this modern age? Cairo Jim, that well-known archaeologist and little-known poet, and his friends Doris the macaw and Brenda the Wonder Camel, find out that all that glitters is NOT gold in this, the 14th startling mystery of history from Geoffrey McSkimming's vast cache of the relentlessly bizarre and whimsical.

    "It pays to enrich..."

    When I was young, I enjoyed those books that made me think and stretch my imagination. Now that I have grandchildren, I still enjoy those types of books. Mr. McSkimming has a passion for his magnum opus, and a great sense of humor. Doris, Brenda and Jim of Cairo share a deep love for one another, and I look forward to more of their adventures gracing these pages.
