About the book
From the award-winning author of the Wild Boy series (described as “good fun and jolly hair-raising” by The Times) comes an action-packed new adventure. Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake is filled with mystery and is perfect for junior Indiana Joneses.
Jake Atlas is constantly in trouble at school, while Pan (his twin sister) has to conceal her genius for fear of bullies. The siblings can't stop fighting – with each other and their parents, a pair of stuffy professors of Ancient History.
But Jake and Pan Atlas's lives take a dramatic turn the day they discover the truth about their seemingly boring Mum and Dad. On a family holiday to Cairo, Jake and Pan's parents mysteriously vanish and it's up to the twins to find them. Cue action and adventure amid the pyramids! Forced to team up with a group of shady tomb robbers, Jake and Pan master high-tech gadgets and locate a long-forgotten tomb in this epic story of a family lost and separated in the deserts of Egypt.

But all he found were interesting stories, so he decided to write them down.
