It’s ancient Rome and the dog belonging to one of Flavia’s neighbours has been killed and beheaded. Flavia and her friends plan to find out who did it.

This is a mix of children’s lit, historical fiction, and mystery. I listened to the audio, and overall it was ok. I did lose focus (as I seem to with audios more often lately) a few times, but the story was ok. There was a short author’s/historical note at the end, though being a kids’ book, it didn’t go into detail. Even with only an “ok” rating from me, it might still be a fun series to continue. ( )

There is nowt innately wrong with this book. My issue, however, is that I'm unsure of where it fits in terms of the age of its intended audience. It's written in a very basic fashion, as would befit junior fiction, but the concepts are such that I wouldn't give this to a junior-fiction-aged child. The things that happen to dogs would have traumatised me for weeks when I was younger, and there are other scary concepts in here as well.

In terms of historical accuracy, Lawrence creates an effective Roman universe, but it's all a bit too modern in terms of the way the characters interact, given that they are all from racial and religious groups that were NOT inclined to be firm friends in the time of Vespasian.

I WAS THINKING about this series the other day and just found it and I'm so pleased!

... I can't remember how many books out of this series I read, but I read a lot of these books. (Some I read back to back.) Either way, I adored this series. I really liked the characters and looking it as an adult now my GOODNESS ME this is a fairly diverse cast! Flavia, the main character is a wealthy Roman girl, but there's also a Jewish boy, an African girl and a poor mute boy called Lupus.

I hadn't realised that - it's really cool to come back to a book series I read when I was younger and realise that it's so inclusive. Or, more inclusive than most?

I loved the plot of these books but more than that I liked all of the character development, the arcs of the characters and how they transformed over a series of books. Some of the books feature very well-known historical characters, Pliny the Elder, Pliny the Younger and so on - so it was cool to learn little tidbits of ancient history while following this motley crew of children on a crazy mystery. (Why were they allowed to get away with so much? They were like, ten!)

ANYWAY. Tiny wee me would've given this book 4.5 stars. So 4.5 it is! ( )

Follows main characters as they try to solve the mystery of who killed the friend's dog. Includes four main characters whose perspectives alternate as protagonist. Relatively easy reading level for students in 8th grade - but includes many details pertaining to a study of Rome that students might find interesting. I could see parts of this book being used in conjunction with study in a social studies classroom. It could be used as a lower-level differentiated reading. The end gets a bit preachy in a religious sense, which could be problematic in a public school setting. ( )
