What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Ancient Egypt’s laziest detective must save a missing boy in the latest entry in this Edgar-nominated mystery series about a pampered but lovable royal cat and his wise dung beetle sidekick. Ra the Mighty is Pharaoh’s Cat, Lord of the Powerful Paw. He is NOT Ra the Royal Babysitter. How’s a cat supposed to fit in all his snacks and naps when his charges keep getting into mischief? Ra’s new job only gets harder on a voyage up the Nile, leading to a fearsome palace where crocodiles swarm the waters. Then Pharaoh’s son disappears. Has he run away? Has he been eaten by crocodiles? Has he been kidnapped, or worse? Ra and his fellow Great Detectives, Khepri and Miu, set out to discover the truth, but the palace is home to many secrets. Can the Great Detectives unravel the mystery, find the missing boy–and make it out alive? More than 30 wacky illustrations with fun historical details bring this mystery to life, along with a glossary, pronunciation guide, and detailed author’s note about ancient Egypt. Don’t miss the companion novels: Edgar-nominated Ra the Mighty: Cat Detective, and Ra the Mighty: The Great Tomb Robbery, which was a Junior Library Guild selection.
