Ten-year-old Tom accidentally smashes a statue in the museum and releases Isis, a young Egyptian princess who has been mummified and imprisoned for thousands of years, along with her cat, Cleo.   Tom, Isis and Cleo set out on an adventure to free Isis from her curse.

They must find six amulets and this adventure finds them coming face to face with some rather ferocious Gladiators in Ancient Rome. Tom and Isis have to unlock the clues of a riddle, given to them by Isis's magical scarab.
