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
