Product description

We want to be her! Taming lions. Walking on her hands. Eating candy floss for breakfast. Solving crimes. Poppy’s life = total envy. She’s even won the Scholastic Montegrappa Prize for new children’s writing. (Jealous yet?) Poppy’s had a pretty awesome start to life, growing up in the circus with lessons in acrobatics and lion taming. It’s just too bad that now she’s eleven, she’s being sent to boarding school. At first Poppy doesn’t fit in at St Smithen’s. But when a legendary ruby from Ancient Egypt turns up, sinister things start to happen. Is the pharaoh’s curse to blame? Can Poppy solve the mystery?

  • Winner of the Scholastic Montegrappa Prize
  • Chosen as the winner from over 1000 entries
  • A rollicking tale full of adventure and wonder
  • “Dances off the page” – TV presenter Cerrie Burnell
