Learn how to read and write in Latin in this gripping puzzle mystery story, written by Blue Peter Award-winning author Andy Seed!


When ancient Roman friends Flavia and Julius uncover a plot to overthrow the emperor, they must stop the criminals before it's too late. But there are a lot of puzzles to solve along the way, from a mysterious message on a tablet to a suspicious conversation at the Colosseum. Will Flavia and Julius get to the banquet in time to save the emperor's life? And who is the mastermind behind the evil plot?

With beautifully detailed artwork by James Weston Lewis, fascinating facts about ancient Rome and a fold-out guide at the back of the book which explains how to read Latin and contains an easy-to-use Latin dictionary, this is the perfect book for children who love history and hair-raising adventures.

Featuring Latin messages, mazes, logic puzzles and more, children will enjoy immersing themselves in ancient Rome and taking part in the story.

A page of solutions is included at the end of the book.

Other titles in the series include: British Museum The Curse of the Tomb Robbers, an Ancient Egyptian Puzzle Mystery (winner of the 2022 Creative Play Book Award).
