Ancient Rome by Anna Nielsen


Ancient Rome by Anna Nielsen

Dive into the world of Ancient Rome and help save Granny from an angry Roman leader by completing the puzzles in the book. Puzzle Heroes is an interactive series of very fun, visually-led books containing an adventure or challenge on every page. There are plenty of search-and-find elements in the style of Where's Wally?, combined with topics of educational value, where fun facts help with the challenges. This gives plenty of opportunity to use the book as an extra learning tool - but ultimately the quests are fantastic fun, engrossing readers to the extent that they won't realise they are learning.


Fascinating puzzles... these really challenge children to think and reason in an enjoyable way... they will have so much fun they won't realise how much they are learning! Parents in Touch
