If you love history, adventure and mystery then this is the book for you!
This amazing book by best selling author, Caroline Laurence is called "The Dolphins of Laurentum."
The main characters are Flavia Gemina, daughter of a rich sea captin, Jonathan, a Jew, Nubia a slave and Lupus a mute begger boy.
I like Nubia because she always listens to people. I also like Jonathan becuse he is very funny!
Laurentum, a seaside town is the setting for this book.
The year is AD79 and the children discover a ship wreck full of treasure. As they try to recover the treasure the terrible mystery of Lupus's past is revealed...
Caroline Laurence will transport you into the world of ancient Rome with plenty of Latin vocabulary on the way with a Latin dictionary in the back!
One of the books from the Roman Mystery series, this book is sutable for age eight upwards.

Book five in the enjoyable Roman Mysteries series continues to explore the history of the four main characters, this time concentrating on Lupus. Once again Caroline Lawrence writes a tight story, giving you a good feeling for Roman history without it seeming like a lecture. A good mix of humour, angst, thrills and cliffhangers, Dolphins will appeal to the seven to seventy year olds. The Famous Five meet Lindsey Davis.

I like mystery books. A mystery book that isn't too scary is just fine for me. But to be able to travel back in time while I'm reading! The Roman Mysteries books are awesome, my most favourite books, and now that I've found out that there are movies of them, I've been borrowing DVDs from the library and I love them! This book is awesome and I really recommend it.
