Still, a super fun story with lots of laughs.

Great fun book.

My boys loved Detectives in Togas and couldn't wait to read another book by the same author. It didn't disappoint. Great characters and plot development. Reads well out loud.
Runemane
He is an 8 year old that reads non-fiction history all the time. Now he has discovered that fiction and history can be fun to investigate. Too bad there were only two of these books written by Winterfeld about the Roman boys. I got him both of them.
