The Chaser’s Andrew Hansen teams up again with Jessica Roberts for the third hilarious adventure in the Bab Sharkey and the Animal Mummies series!

A mummified chunk of brain. A Fish Mummy sucked down a garbage chute. And a chamber of purple magic … that absorbs people like a sponge! On a rescue mission, boy Pharaoh Bab Sharkey becomes trapped in Egypt’s greatest pyramid. What is the terrible truth about the Unpharaoh’s past? Can Bab unearth the secrets of the Spongy Void? And will Prong and Scaler be thrown into a mummy museum forever?

  • Will appeal to readers aged 8+ who love humorous texts with songs, heaps of jokes and yummy dustburgers.
  • The black-and-white illustrations provide plenty of added gags and zing to the text.
  • Perfect for fans of comic writers like Ahn Do, Peter Helliar and David Walliams.

About the Illustrator

Jessica Roberts writes, draws and films stories. She has a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design, and a Foundation Diploma in film studies. Originally from Kyneton, Victoria, Jessica grew up surrounded by an odd collection of pets including dogs, quails, chickens, sheep, goats, rabbits and a donkey. Her stories often involve animals and she uses her childhood memories of growing up in the country as a bank of ideas for storytelling. A trip to Egypt in 2009 inspired the idea for her first book, Bab Sharkey and the Animal Mummies: The Weird Beard, released in 2018 by Walker Books Australia.

Industry Reviews

"Husband-and-wife duo Hansen and Roberts have created a wacky story with characters that are entertaining and cute (in a disgusting way) ... There are tidbits of ancient history scattered along the way, but the focus is on the weird fun and adventure."
