Henry’s house is full of very unexpected things. This time, the house is packed with all things Roman. There are gladiators, citizens, slaves and schoolboys. Find out all the details of how Romans lived their lives in this witty part fiction, part non fiction guide to the very different way of life of our very influential ancestors. Both the words and pictures in graphic cartoon style, take readers on a great journey into the past.

He wrote BBC Radio’s first truly interactive radio drama, collaborated with Sir Paul McCartney on his first children’s book and is a ‘regularly irregular’ reviewer of children’s books for the Guardian.
