Rattling good story!,
This review is from: The Thieves of Ostia (Paperback)
We read this book as part of our Year 7 project. It has been set in the year 79 AD in Ostia, Rome. You really get the impression that Caroline Lawrence has actually been to Ostia because she describes the city as it actually is, including the names of roads and buildings. The four main characters represent the usual child detective stereotypes but they work well together. There is a twist at the end which i did not predict. Caroline Lawrence is really cool...she came to our school and spoke all about her book as well as signing copies for us.
