Synopsis

Roman Fort by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Readers are taken on a journey through ancient Rome with an authentic and appealing cast of characters at work, at home, and at play. The sounds, smells, and textures of everyday Roman life are vividly evoked as young readers march through the rain with Vespian's centurions as they escort Lepidina over the mountains and visit a very important queen, witness a gladiator show at an arena, and visit the bathroom with noble Romans, Candidus and Flavinus. Part of the Fly on the Wall non-fiction series based on 'fly-on-the-wall' reporting.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
