The seventh novel in the "Discworld" series concentrates on the problems of being a teenage pharaoh and humorously explores Egyptian history. The other novels in the series include "The Colour of Magic", "Sourcery" and "Wyrd Sisters".
'Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you'.
Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse - and indeed treasury - is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired qualification from the Guild of Assassins where running a kingdom and basic financial acumen were not prerequisites for course entry...
Signed with an accompanying drawing of a pyramid, and a quote 'May your camels always be bountiful'
