The Beggar of Volubilis : Book 14 Paperback

Part of the The Roman Mysteries series


The fourteenth title in the bestselling Roman Mysteries series, re-issued with a brand new cover look.The friends are on a quest for the Emperor Titus - to steal a gemstone known as 'Nero's Eye'.

The Delphic Oracle prophesied that whoever owns the gem will rule Rome - so Titus wants it for himself.

As the friends travel on a caravan across the desert they encounter slave-traders, pantomime actors and a wild animal stampede - not to mention another puzzle: what has happened to Uncle Gaius?

A talented storyteller, Caroline Lawrence has created a delightfully readable and accessible series that children will want to read time and time again.
