Straight from the mouth of a best-selling author and Egyptologist, Rob takes children on a fascinating journey: from how he started writing (and how you can too), to the real life treasure hunt that inspired his new novel. Rob’s fun, interactive event includes a quiz, prizes, giant skeletons, and creepy Egyptian mummies…
Rob is the author of over 100 books, including the critically acclaimed Wild Boy and Jake Atlas novels for Walker Books, and the best-selling See inside books for Usborne Publishing. He is the winner of the Royal Society Book Prize, nominated for the Carnegie Medal, and shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award – as well as an amateur Egyptologist, very amateur archaeologist, and hopeless cook.
