I'm a teacher of Y3 and 4 children and read this book as part of our topic about the Romans. They really enjoyed it and followed Davey's exploits with interest. They have since borrowed the book and read it at home. We also read Across the Roman Wall by Theresa Breslin and Gladiators Never Blink by Nick Warburton.I think their favourite was Gillian Cross. All the books I purchased through Amazon.

What a terrific book! Very entertaining story, and pertinent to my 8 year old's sons school topic covering Romans. My son is a slow reader and this book really held his interest and increased his comprehension abilities. The choice and range of diction is just right, some new words well placed so that comprehension was easy. Just simply a great book and I think for my son, a pivotal one for his being able to both understand and enjoy reading a whole book on his own.

Read in mind to see if it was suitable to read with my Year 3 class, as we will be doing the Romans in Autumn term. Nice little book, you really get behind the main character and cheer when he wins at the end of the story. The only downside is that you don't learn anything about the Romans, but it is a nice little side story to accompany your topic.

Format: Paperback
The story is good but there are quite a few spelling mistakes in the book which I have noticed when reading the story out to my class. Could cause problems if a child is reading independently. We are only up to chapter three and I have come across at least three errors already which is rather disappointing.
