Performing his own work, Geoffrey MacSkimming uses a wry, nimble delivery in this latest installment of his Cairo Jim series.
In Cairo Jim and the Secret Sepulchre of the Sphinx, the world-famous archaeologist (and "little-known poet") discovers a diary that promises the "Greatest of the Great" wonder of the world. On this quest for his next great discovery, Jim is accompanied by his partner, Jocelyn Osgood, and his loyal animal friends, Doris the macaw and Brenda the Wonder Camel.
MacSkimming imbues his performance with suspense and deliciously colorful character voices (especially Doris the macaw). In a book that’s chock full of adventure and pun-filled humor, the author makes his performance both suspenseful and fun.
Another mind-blowing mystery of history from the master of archaeological humor and suspense, Geoffrey McSkimming.
Me and my daughter love listening to the Cairo Jim stories. I love the voice of the narrator, and the funny but interesting adventures that the trio get up to. I love historical fiction as it brings the past to life!
