"Amazing" -

I'm a 10 year old who loves these books. I am on the 13th book and love them, they are amazing!!!!

"Great value" -

I bought these books and they are very interesting. You learn about the lives of Romans and mixed with a bit of mystery and drama, it is a fantastic read. For 9 years or older because some of them are about murder.

"Not for younger readers" -

I bought these for my 7 year old daughter who has a reading age of 9. I read the first 2 books myself first and was surprised to find suicide in the first one, and a theme of 'who is my real father and did my mother have a lover' in the second. Although they're a good read, I'm not sure that's appropriate for a 7 year old. Probably my fault for buying books that are too old for her, but thought others might like to know.

TBP says:

The age range on this set is 9-11 years, it's not suitable for 7 year olds.

"Fantastic books" -

I bought these books for my 9 year old son. He couldn't put them down, he thought they were a brilliant read and couldn't wait to go to bed to read them. Very well written and a great insight to early Roman life.

"Incredible bargain!" -

This collection is incredible for the price. I bought them for my students (primary), started reading them myself and couldn't put them down. The last 2 books of the series can be bought from Amazon (at roughly the same price The Book People are charging for 15 novels!). I'm 28 and adored them, as has everyone else I've lent them to. A definite 'must buy'.
