How far would you go to avoid school? For 10,000-year-old Mortimer DeVere and his sister, Agnetha, the answer is: a very long way indeed. As far as the DeVere children are concerned, they have eaten their last soggy sandwich, handed in their last piece of homework and avoided their last bully. But not if Trish Molyneux has anything to do with it. In a desperate bid for freedom, Mort and Agnetha find themselves marooned in ancient Egypt, along with a grumpy Queen Victoria, a nosy writer who believes in fairies, a bloodthirsty crocodile and a tunnel full of zombie-mummies. Suddenly, school isn't looking quite so bad.
