Ra the Mighty: The Great Tomb Robbery

By: A. B. Greenfield

Illustrator: Sarah Horne

Ra the Mighty adores his duties as Pharaoh’s cat: naps by the pool and plenty of snacks. Being lazy is so much fun. But when a royal tomb gets robbed, Ra and his hardworking friend Khepri must team up to restore justice. The clues point to a young boy whom Ra admires. Will the Great Detective play favorites, or will he uncover the truth? Mystery awaits!

More than thirty wacky illustrations with fun historical details bring these oddball characters to life, along with a glossary, pronunciation guide, and detailed author’s note about ancient Egypt. Fans of Bad Kitty will love Ra’s witty voice and arrogant antics.

“Ra’s Glossary of Names.” Note on hieroglyphics. Author’s note. Bibliography. Black-and-white illustrations created with pen and ink with a digital finish.
