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 Jinxed Sphinx; All Dad has to trade is a damaged sphinx. But when a trio of dancing girls hitch a lift on his boat - things start and look up! The newly named group - The Sphinxy Minxes - are asked to perform at an important feast to mark the passing of General Plonkitandbumpit, and it's up to Ptoni to make sure of success.
