3.0 out of 5 stars Frankie vs the Rowdy Romans 5 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Frankie vs the Rowdy Romans follows the same formula as the previous book. Frankie and his friends are magically transported to play a football match, this time at the Colloseum in ancient Rome. Can Frankie and his friends beat the rowdy Romans and be home in time for tea?
I didn't enjoy this second book as much as the first in the series. I felt there could have been more drama and excitement relating to the atmosphere in the Colloseum and that the sections where the spirited audience showed their emotions were the most successful parts of the story. These were humorous and affirming, yet much of the rest of the section about the match itself was a bit longwinded and I found myself willing the action to speed up.
Additional features of a maze for children to complete and further `Top Trumps' style cards (which are also to be found in the other books in the Frankie's Magic Football series) that can be found at the end of the book may appeal to children, especially those who look for more than purely a story from their books.
Overall I was slightly disappointed by this one, but still admire Frank Lampard's passionate attitude towards promoting children's fiction. I can also see that it may appeal to reluctant readers, particularly boys, and that can only be a good thing.

Bought this for my 7 year old son. He absolutely loved it. Only negative was that he loved it so much he finished it in two days and promptly asked for book 3 in the series. I hope Frank plans on writing many more!!
