Theodosia's adventures continue to revolve around ancient artifacts at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities. Who would have guessed that going to a magic show with her friend Sticky Will would lead to extraordinary events involving an emerald tablet, secrets about her birth place, a funeral, and the very interesting Great Awi Bubu? And how does Clive Fagenbush fit into all of this? The first book in the series is Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos followed by Theodosia and the Staff of Osiris and then this one.

Tombs. Mummies. Curses. Secret Societies. Mystery. Theodosia Throckmornton knows a lot about ancient Egypt and that is a good thing given all the peculiar happenings that come her way. Her mother is an archaeologist, her father is the head curator of the Museum of Legends and Antiquities in London, and her brother, well, he's younger and that is enough said about that. So, as you would expect, Theo spends plenty of time at the museum and it is her ability to feel and see ancient curses that are attached to artifacts that causes all the trouble. The legendary Heart of Egypt amulet is the most cursed artifact Theo has ever encountered. From the moment it comes to the museum, Theo's life is changed and if she does not find a way to return the amulet to Egypt, the British Empire will crumble. Theo's dangerous quest will have you on the edge of your seat. This is the first book in the series followed by Theodosia and the Staff of Osiris and Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus.

Theodosia is back and so is Mr. Tetley of the British Museum, but he is not at all the same as when she last crossed paths with him. To add to the chaos, mummies from museums all over London mysteriously appear at her father's museum and no one knows how they got there or why. Another mysterious adventure filled with lots of mummies, curses, secret societies, and now, governesses. The first book in the series is Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos followed by Theodosia and the Staff of Osiris and continued with Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus.

Imagine being so detested in your school that your only friends are the tiny figurines of the animal collection in your bedroom. Imagine you tell unreasonable lies without a second thought about why you are telling them. On top of all of this, imagine people, including your own father, your teachers, and even yourself, believe that you are a hopeless delinquent with no ability to change whatsoever. Imagine all of this and you might get an idea of what it used to be like to be fifth grader Bradley Chalkers. However, when the new school counselor Carla Davis and a new student Jeff Fishkin come into Bradley's life, everything changes. This book tells the story of the redemption of Bradley Chalkers, a school menace turned into a school champion. The story is slightly humorous, slightly serious, but all interesting. So�you might ask what all of this has to do with a boy being in a girl's bathroom. You'll have to read Louis Sachar's book to find out!
