Description More Information
 
In this delightful history-mysteries, Detectives in Togas and Mystery of the Roman Ransom, seven boys in Ancient Rome solve strange crimes . . . thanks to some help from their cranky teacher, a little bit of logic, and a lot of amusing misadventure.

It seems the boys can get nothing right: Their teacher's fiftieth birthday is long past (they should have done their math homework); the servant they bought as a present for his birthday isn't just your run-of-the-mill Gaul slave but a courier running for his life; and, to top it all off, the message he's carrying requests the assassination of a Roman senator--the father of one of the boys.

"For those of you who enjoyed the delightful and witty Detectives in Togas those seven irrepressible young detectives are back again. . . . Glorious fun abounds on each page, making this a most welcome sequel indeed."-- Publishers Weekly

A fun read-aloud!
