 About the Book 

When his Uncle Thomas gave Poots a golden staff to look after, he thought that it would be safe. After all, who would think to look for a priceless Egyptian artefact in the South Pole? The young penguin hid it behind his neatly arranged Wibbly PigMoreWhen his Uncle Thomas gave Poots a golden staff to look after, he thought that it would be safe. After all, who would think to look for a priceless Egyptian artefact in the South Pole? The young penguin hid it behind his neatly arranged Wibbly Pig collection and forgot about it.This all changed when a Professor from the South Pole Museum came into school to give the class a talk on the great pharaohs of ancient Egypt.Poots recognised the staff, and when he showed it to the rest of the Snow Falls Gang, things started to get weird.First of all the Gang started dreaming of ancient Egypt, but how could they possibly all have the same dream?Then somebody breaks into Poots’ bedroom looking for the staff. But who could know that he had it, and why do they want it so badly?The answers must be held within the golden staff, but can the gang find the key to the mystery before their ruthless enemy gets there first?The Gang is back for another exciting episode. Adventure seems to find them, even if they are not looking for it.Who knew the South Pole could be this much fun?About the AuthorSimon McWhirter almost grew up in Birmingham, England during the seventies. Throughout his childhood he grew and grew until he became 5’ 11”.After a degree in electronic engineering and then going on to become a Chartered Accountant (for kicks and giggles), he decided to follow a career in fun and laughter, so worked at an investment bank for 20 years.Sadly the laughter stopped after just a few hours, but it was a large building and it took the rest of the time to find the exit.He now lives in Surrey with a very tolerant wife, three less tolerant children, a mad dog, four warring gerbils, three fish, two snails, and a partridge in a pear tree!
