In the Books

Book Of The Dead

In the first book, Book of the Dead, Alex has problems with his disease, while also trying to figure out what the new exhibit at the museum is. His illness causes him to collapse at the museum, while slightly 'hallucinating.' Alex dies in the hospital later in the book, but his mother uses The Lost Spells to bring him back to life. All is well, until it is found out that she has released the Stung Man, a mummy who was originally a farmer/outlaw, and the Death Walkers, an evil group of Ancient Egyptians who are supposedly undead. Soon after, Alex's mother is kidnapped by the Death Walkers for her use of The Lost Spells. Alex, Ren and Dr. Todtman go on a quest to find Maggie, and defeat the evil Stung Man, who takes use of magic while they attack him. They defeat the Stung Man and the evil Al Dab'u, but Alex's mother is not found.


  • His name is pronounced sen-NEF-er. He was surprised that Dr. Todtman could pronounce it correctly on his first try.
