The Trouble with Mummies

Written by Fleur Hitchcock

The Trouble with Mummies Synopsis

Probably the first really noticeable thing was Mum coming back from the hairdresser's on Friday afternoon, wearing a small black beard. Sam comes home one day to find his family turning strange - his mum is redecorating using hieroglyphics and his dad is building a pyramid in the back garden. He hopes it's just a weird new fashion... but then the strangeness starts to spread. With the help of his friends Ursula, Henry and Lucy the Goat, Sam must save his town from rampaging Roman rugby players, hairdressers turned cavewomen, and a teacher who used to be a 'basket of kittens' but now wants to sacrifice the Year Ones to the Aztec sun god. As history invades Sam's world, will he be able to keep the Greeks away from the Egyptians and discover the cause of the Mummy madness? WARNING: contains dangerous dressing-up, mild historical violence and prolonged scary humour.
