5.0 out of 5 stars Sign Me Up for the Voyage!, 5 Jun 2008
This review is from: From Ostia to Alexandria with Flavia Gemina: Travels with Flavia Gemina (The Roman Mysteries) (Paperback)
As a librarian who has read many travel books, I have to say that this tie-in with Caroline Lawrence's wonderful Roman Mysteries children's series is very different -- and the most fun!

Caroline Lawrence's enjoyable reminiscences of places she has visited are accompanied with delightful tips and suggested activities for the aspiring young detectrix or detective. Cities and lands to be explored are covered under three sections in the book: Italy, Greece, and North Africa -- with each section easily accessed via a sort of printed thumb index. The book contains several outstanding, full-color photographic illustrations in the center, and at the end both an index and a listing of useful websites to visit.

This book has inspired me to don my apotropaic pendant (if you're wondering what one of those is, read Caroline Lawrence's novel The Colossus of Rhodes) and book passage on the next ship out!
