Editor reviews

Cairo Jim is back again… but it's not the same song and dance. No, this time, he's in search of a lost civilization that danced itself right into extinction! And it looks like there might be some unexpected company coming his way. As always, Geoffrey McSkimming performs his own work, giving it that extra oomph that only the author can. American kids, don't worry about McSkimming's Australian accent; he's very easy to understand. Best of all, McSkimming creates lots of fun voices for his delightful characters.

Summary

Legend has it that somewhere in Peru, atop a towering, jungle-covered mountain, stand the ruins of ChaCha Muchos, the Lost City of Dancers. What happened there nearly 500 years ago remains a mystery. Who were these people? And why, in the end, did the entire tribe dance itself to extinction? When that well-known archaeologist and little-known poet, Cairo Jim, sets out to solve the mystery, he doesn't know that he is not the only one on the trail to ChaCha Muchos...

Critic reviews

"When you tire of stories about the places and people you know, try the witty word play and over-the-top adventure of Cairo Jim for an outrageous tonic." ( The Age)
