[Editor's Note: the following is a combined review with CAIRO JIM.]--Grab your pith helmet and join Cairo Jim on a pair of rollicking adventures sure to tickle the funny bone of young and old alike. From Australia come two audio offerings featuring a wacky cast of characters headed by the famed archaeologist poet. In CAIRO JIM ON THE TRAIL TO CHACHA MUCHOS, Jim travels to the jungles of South America, where he meets Doris, the talking macaw, who becomes his partner and often the real brains behind these crazy expeditions. Read by the author, the stories pit Jim against his nemesis, the evil Neptune Bone, who also has a feathered sidekick, a nasty raven out to pluck the plumage from the colorful Doris. Jim's spunky bird gets even more recognition in CAIRO JIM AND DORIS IN SEARCH OF MARTENARTEN, in which the bitter rivals each try to be first to find the lost tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh.
