5.0 out of 5 stars Flavia & Friends Are Back, and Rocking the Roman World, 4 Mar 2010
Caroline Lawrence has come through once again with another exciting and entertaining collection of mini-mysteries to complement her 17-volume opus: The Roman Mysteries. As with her previous collection of mini-mysteries (Trimalchio's Feast), these stories occur at various points along the Roman Mysteries timeline (Caroline lets us know precisely where each mini-mystery fits in along her carefully constructed RM story arc, with brief introductions). Everything fits into place - just as our heroine Flavia Gemina neatly puts together her available clues to solve each mystery.

While fans may be saddened to hear that Caroline has finished writing The Roman Mysteries, fans (who have been growing up over the years that Caroline has been writing these novels) can take heart in Caroline's promise of an upcoming Flavian Trilogy - intended for older readers.

I know I'll be looking forward to further tales of Roman mystery from Caroline Lawrence!

A Kid's Review
This book is excellent. It has 6 short mysteries,set in ancient Rome. They are fictional but you can learn some facts from them.It has a glossary at the back and a small map of Ostia at the front. If you do enjoy it there is a set of 17 full length books too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mini Mysteries, 4 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was quite short compared to the bigger books. They are more of an easier read rather than an extension to the real books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Roman Mysteries continue., 14 Jan 2013

A slim book containing half a dozen short story mysteries involving the children from Caroline Lawrence's Roman Mysteries.
Written for children but sometimes with adult themes, the Mysteries give a wonderful view of real life in Roman times.
