“Filled with puns that will make you chuckle as you read, this book is an enjoyable and unusual tale that is sure to delight and entertain.”
—Green Sheet Education Foundation
In this fifth Roopster Roux adventure, the latest escapade of the rambunctious reader Roopster Roux features comedian Steve Harvey as costar. Here, the evil Punster is determined to steal Egyptian artifacts from a museum exhibit—and to create annoying puns while doing it.
Steve and Roopster unwittingly fall victim to the Punster’s dumb jokes until they challenge the Punster to a war of words and beat him at his own game. Once the treasures are returned to the museum, the Punster is sent to the “pun-itentiary,” but we know it’s only a matter of time before Roopster Roux finds himself in another madcap adventure requiring the young rooster’s unique crime-stopping abilities.
This action-packed tale is ideal for reluctant readers, who will enjoy the pun-slinging fun with Steve Harvey, star of the former television series The Steve Harvey Show and current host of the syndicated morning radio show by the same name. As an actor, entertainer, and philanthropist, Mr. Harvey continues his unending commitment to furthering opportunities for children and young adults throughout the country with generous contributions from the Steve Harvey Foundation.
