Avoid Being a Slave in Pompeii! Paperback
by John Malam
Illustrated by David Antram
Part of the The Danger Zone series
It is AD 79 and you are a trusted slave, looking after your master's young son in a quiet and pleasant Roman seaside town.
But there's something unusual about the mountain that looms over that town, and your life is about to change forever!
The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like being a slave in Pompeii.
Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
