About The Book
‘The king must die,’ hissed the voice. ‘Make it look like an accident, but do it soon.’
‘What about the queen?’
‘Don’t worry about her. She won’t be a problem, unless she’s with child of course. Speak to the others, put some ideas together and then meet me here again at the same time tomorrow so you can tell me what you’ve come up with. I’m expecting results, so you’d better not let me down.’

Summary (From Back Cover): Max, a cat unlike any other you might encounter, is terrified of Egyptian mummies; so he is understandably nervous to find himself transported back in time to ancient Egypt alongside his owners, Joe and Jemima Lancelot, and their friend, Charlie. The twins are still hoping to find their missing parents who are trapped somewhere in the past, having lost the key which would bring them home. Arriving at the court of Tutankhamun the children uncover a deadly plot to assassinate the young pharaoh. Can they save his life and will they manage to escape before the plotters discover their true identities?
The fourth book in the Shadows From The Past series, time-travel adventure stories featuring 3 children and a talking Tonkinese cat.

About The Author, Wendy Leighton-Porter
Dividing my time between homes in England and South-West France, I live with my husband Simon and our two beautiful Tonkinese cats. I spent 20 years as a teacher of French, Latin and Classical studies, but now write books for children instead of teaching them.
The Shadow of the Pyramid is the fourth in a series of 15 time-travel stories, featuring 3 children and, unsurprisingly, a rather special Tonkinese cat. Having recently completed number 6, The Shadow of Camelot, I’m currently working on the seventh book in the series, The Shadow of the Norman Arrow.
As I take my young readers on a magical mystery tour through the past, I’m also hoping that my love of history, myth and legend will rub off on them too. Personally, I’m enjoying the journey so much, I don’t ever want it to end! Why not come along with me for the ride?
