Young children will love this book. The second volume of hapless Roman boy Dorkius Maximus’s diary is hilarious.
This time Dorkius is accompanying Caesar to Egypt to negotiate with the pharaoh for the return of money owed to Rome. But the boy pharaoh proves to be a tricky character, with a wind problem.
Can Dorkius battle through camel-sickness and his own natural ability to mess things up to get results for Rome and be assured of his heroic status?
