Follow the adventures of Ptoni, his Dad and the cat, Ptiddles, on their leaky old trading boat. They sail up and down the Nile trying to earn a living bartering any produce they can get their hands on. Dad is a useless businessman and the crew are the laziest group of layabouts ever to get on a boat, so it's up to Ptoni to see things through. These funny, joke-packed books are the fifth and sixth in the series. Cartoon illustrations add to the humour and enhance the text. A special section at the back of the book gives notes on interesting facts about everyday life. A humorous introduction to life in Ancient Egypt. THE POINTLESS PYRAMID When a couple of tomb robbers board the boat - things look black. Before they know where they are, Dad and Ptoni are sentenced to impalement, for breaking into the Pointless Pyramid - first on the left past Tutinkarhorn's! But Ptoni sorts it all out.
