Geoffrey McSkimming is at it again with this addition to the Cairo Jim series. The beloved archeologist Cairo Jim must find a stolen ancient vase before it unleashes a powerful force on the world. McSkimming both writes and narrates this series, and his performance brings the excitement that only an author can give to his own work. With his excellent annunciation, McSkimming's Australian accent is no problem for American audiences. He particularly shines when performing his characters' voices; they will surely make young audiences giggle.
The most flabbergasting adventure yet! A seemingly ordinary vase is stolen from the Greek Archaeological Museum by a figure swathed in mystery. The vase – an ancient alabastron – holds a potent force that must NOT be allowed to escape! It is up to Cairo Jim (that well-known archaeologist and little-known poet) and friends to track down the thief, before the alabastron's mysterious contents are unleashed upon the modern world.
