A Good Addition; One Caution

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

We've read Detectives in Togas and its sequel, Mystery of the Roman Ransom. My girls really liked them. They are good mystery plots and give a real taste of life in Ancient Rome woven into the storyline. The main caution I would give is that they use a lot of Roman-god comments . . . "By Jupiter," and "The gods be praised" and stuff like that -- more in the sequel than in the first book. I read them aloud so I could edit out those comments as we went along. Overall, a good addition to an Ancient Rome study.
