The first book in the prize winning mystery series.
Poppy Pym has grown up in the circus, taming lions before
lunch and learning acrobatics in the afternoon.
But when she turns eleven, her circus family decides she needs
a more traditional education, and she is sent to boarding school.
At first Poppy doesn't fit in at St Smithen's, a school that is
very different from the circus. Then, an ancient Egyptian ruby
arrives at school and dangerous accidents start occurring. Suddenly
it's up to Poppy to save her new school and solve the mystery
of the Pharaoh's curse!

Perfect for younger fans of A Murder Most Unladylike
and older Enid Blyton stories
The first book was the winner of the Montegrappa Scholastic
New Children's writing Prize (2015), chosen from
almost 1,000 entries
Exciting, funny and adventurous, Poppy Pym blends a classic boarding
school story with a quirky circus family and a thrilling
smuggling mystery
