An intrepid girl must return a magical artifact to its rightful home in this archeological fantasy adventure for young readers.
Eleven-year-old Theodosia Throckmorton is once again setting off for Egypt—this time to return an Emerald Tablet that contains some of the ancient world’s most guarded secrets. Accompanied by her cat, Isis (smuggled along in a basket), Theo plans to return the artifact, then explore the mysteries surrounding her own birth and oh, yes—help her mother dig up treasures on her archeological expedition.
But nothing ever works out as planned, especially when a precious treasure suddenly appears, and then just as suddenly disappears . . . When the Serpents of Chaos get involved, Theo finds she’s digging up more trouble than she expected!
