As a fierce Celtic warrior captured by the Romans, you are chosen for the gladiator school. Do you think being a Roman gladiator seems glamorous? Think again!

This interactive series will enthrall young and reluctant readers (Ages 8-12) by making them part of the story, inviting them to become the main character. Each book uses humorous illustrations to depict the sometimes dark and horrific side of life during important eras in history. At gladiator school, you'll be taught to fight, kill and die in a suitably sporting manner to entertain the Roman crowds. If you survive, you could become a hero-but don't count on it.
