'Has everything I like: humour, action, great characters and awesome
mythology!' Rick Riordan, bestselling author of Percy Jackson

'A new star is born.' Eoin Colfer, bestselling author of ArtemisFowl

Twelve-year-old Aru Shah has a tendency to stretch the truth in order
to fit in at school. Whilst her classmates are jetting off to
exotic locales, she'll be at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian
Art and Culture where her mother works. Is it any wonder that
Aru makes up stories about being royalty, traveling to Paris, and
having a chauffeur? When Aru's schoolmates dare her to prove that
the museum's Lamp of Bharata is cursed, she doesn't think there's
any harm in lighting it. Little does Aru know that lighting the
lamp has dire consequences. She unwittingly frees the Sleeper,
an ancient demon whose duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction.
Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and, accompanied
by a wise-cracking pigeon and her long-lost half-sister,
it's up to Aru to save them.
