Eye of the Cyclaw by Robin Price

The Lovereading4Kids comment

This series brings history brilliantly alive in a fun way for children aged 6+. This is the second in a series of 4 featuring all manner of cats; no humans to be found in the pages at all.


Eye of the Cyclaw by Robin Price


'This series is an excellent way to introduce young readers (6+) to the world of ancient Greece and Rome; they make good class readers. Lively illustrations by Chris Watson add to the enjoyment.' Parents in Touch

'Spartapuss is already the star of a great series and now younger readers can enjoy his son's exploits in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Not the ancient worlds you may know, though - humans have never existed here. Son of Spartapuss has a lot to learn when a mysterious stranger offers to pay his debts he finds himself in the School for Strays, a school for gladiators.. and en route to the Olympuss Games. If you love puns, then you are in for a real treat! And if you don't, but want to learn a bit of ancient history whilst enjoying a fun story, either way, this is a great series for you!'

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
