Product Description

Review

The Roman Mysteries is a hugely popular series and it's good to see this series for slightly younger readers. It's fun and well-written and has a real appeal. The authentic Roman background makes this an excellent series for classroom use to support and enhance the study of Ancient Rome. (Parents in Touch Blog)

An exciting mystery and a history lesson, served up with humour. It's all very educational and very romantic. I've said it before, but those chickens are marvellous. And so are these little books, with so much goodness in them. (Bookwitch Blog)

Book Description

Packed with hilarious historical detail, the third in this series follows the fortunes of Threptus, the former beggar boy, as he struggles to avert the disaster threatened by the thunder omen!

More About the Author

Million-selling author Caroline Lawrence writes detective stories with the double aim of entertaining children and teaching them. Combining fast-moving plots with historical accuracy means her history mystery stories are beloved of children, parents and teachers.

In 2009, Caroline won the Classical Association Prize for her Roman Mysteries series, which comprises over 20 books and inspired a glossy BBC TV series.

In 2011 Caroline launched a second historical detective series, the Western Mysteries, staring P.K. Pinkerton: a 12-year-old doubly orphaned detective who has trouble "reading people". The Case of the Deadly Desperados was the Sunday New York Times Editors' Choice in February 2012. P.K. Pinkerton and the Petrified man was shortlisted for an Edgar Award in 2014. The UK title of the same book is The Case of the Good Looking Corpse. P.K.'s third mystery was The Case of the Pistol-packing Widows. The final and fourth book in the series is The Case of the Bogus Detective.

Caroline has also written a book for Barrington Stoke, who specialise in books for dyslexic and reluctant readers. The Night Raid is a re-telling of the story of Nisus and Euryalus from Virgil's Aeneid.

Caroline says: "I want to know everything about the past, especially the exciting things. Also the sounds, smells, sights and tastes. I write historical novels because nobody has invented a Time Machine. And I write for kids because 11 is my inner age."

Caroline is also writing a spin-off series of Roman books for readers aged 7+, starting with
The Sewer Demon
