Cairo, 1933 The merciless Otto Von Sturm will do anything to reach his prize--deception, bribery, even murder--but 12-year-old Ronald "Rocket" Robinson, Nuri, and Screech may just outsmart him . . . if they can stay alive long enough. The Egyptian captial is a buzzing hive of treasure-hunters, thrill-seekers, and adventurers, but to Rocket Robinson, it's just another sticker on his well worn suitcase. The only son of an American diplomat, Rocket travels from city to city with his monkey Screech, never staying in one place long enough to call it home, but when Rocket finds a strange note written in Egyptian hieroglyphs, he stumbles into an adventure more incredible than anthing he's ever dreamt of. With the help of Screech and a new friend--a gypsy girl named Nuri--Rocket navigates the secret underworld of Cairo. Soon they run afoul of master criminal Otto Von Sturm, who's planning the theft of the greatest treasure in history--an ancient pharaoh's fortune, secretly hidden for centuries. In order to stop him, Rocket and Nuri will have to decode an ancient riddle, solve a cryptic puzzle, face hungry crocodiles, and navigate a centuries-old labyrinth full of traps--all while staying one step ahead of Otto's blood thirsty goons. Not to mention the ancient curse that guards the treasure.

He spends his days in endless meetings with incompetent supervisors, performing perfunctory tasks mixed with the occasional team-building, brainstorming, or management fad-of-the-day session. He has entertained us for more than two decades: He's Dilbert. Created in 1989 by Adams, in his own cubicle as a doodle distraction, Dilbert has found a home in the workplace, this generation's home away from home. Adams amuses readers with his portrayal of the absurdities of this environment with unfailing accuracy and precision. As readers of more than 2,000 newspapers, millions of books, and the newly revamped Dilbert.com site know, the familiar mouthless character with the upturned tie, his dog, Dogbert, the pointy-haired Boss, over-achieving Alice and underachieving Wally, Human Resources director Catbert, depict a world that's all too easy to recognize, complete with shrinking cubicles, clueless co-workers, focus groups and ill-conceived management concepts.
