About this title
The Curse of Catunkhamun (pronounced "CAT-un-common") features intrepid dog detectives Scott and West who battle for the safety of the canine world against the mad schemes of the dastardly feline genius, Dr. Mew Man-Chew and his tragic daughter, Princess Mee-Ow. The story begins with the theft of a giant dog bone made of pure gold -- and takes our heroes halfway around the world to an ancient Egyptian temple -- where they try to stop Man-Chew's diabolical plot to enslave the entirety of Dog-dom as his --GASP!-- personal pets! The Curse of Catunkhamun will introduce to its picturebook audience the fun and thrills of the detective adventure-mystery genre, and is a perfect gateway to the chapterbooks of the advanced reader. This light-hearted, humorous tribute to the "pulp" heroes of the dime novel and Saturday afternoon serials will entertain (unsuspecting!) grown-ups as well as their offspring. The beautifully illustrated, oversized edition (11 X 15) has as an added highlight an original puzzle board (based on our tale) featured on the endpapers of the book.About the Author:
