The school Culture Fair is coming up, and Andy Shane has to pick an African country to learn about. Deciding isnít easy for Andy, so heís glad when Granny Webb gives him a scarab beetle, which he knows is a symbol of Egypt. But when Andy tries to tell Ms. Janice, Dolores Starbuckle springs up with her gold jewelry and glitter sandals and claims that she is the queen of Egypt.
