Sennapod, an Egyptian pharaoh, awakens from his long sleep cursing the grave robbers who are after his treasure. Eventually he finds help with the Lightspeed family. Beach delivers Sennapod's stately speech with deep, commanding tones that befit his royal status and contrast with the silly predicaments he creates. Grimstone, the chief villain, is aptly characterized with a harsh, determined voice. Professor Jelly, the assistant villain, has a slightly foolish, high-pitched voice, making him barely a threat and gently amusing. Timing the dialogue and lines expertly, Beach makes good use of the humor in the text. Youngsters are sure to smile at the shenanigans. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
