Follows the adventures of Lillian, the daughter of renowned Egyptologist Professor Bowell, and Imhotep IV, a dashing mummy owned by the professor who is awake for the first time in thirty centuries and is in love with Lillian.

McMillan Palgrave

Imhotep IV is an Egyptian mummy who's just opened his eyes for the first time in 3,000 years. Lillian Bowell is the daughter of a renowned Egyptologist. One day, when the Professor's away, the two go out for an afternoon on the town. The heap of trouble that they land in--brought on by Mozart, afternoon tea, and a passing gentleman's sensitive nature--only deepens when they learn Imhotep IV's father is in town. Can Imhotep IV and Lillian stay together when both their fathers, the London Police, and even the Archeological society are desperate to drag them apart?

Written by the hilarious and insightful Joann Sfar and painted in muted, sepia-toned watercolors by Emmanuel Guibert, this book is something to keep as a display piece, a thing of beauty--if you can put down the engaging story long enough for others to admire it!
