Abstract:

In this story, the British Museum in London has asked Nick to consult on a mummy that the museum has acquired from Egypt. Upon opening the mummy, the scientists have found plant seeds and they wish to learn whether or not the seeds can be germinated. When Nick and the kids arrive in London, they learn that someone has been stealing and vandalizing national treasures including Big Ben, the famous London clock tower, a Van Gogh painting at the National Gallery, and a rare Egyptian sculpture of a cat. The four kids help find the thieves. Along the way, they learn about Parliament, the difference between pounds and dollars, the Rosetta Stone, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Sherlock Holmes, and Queen Elizabeth.
