In Roman Fort, husband-and-wife team Mick Manning and Brita Granstom take readers on a journey through ancient Rome with an authentic and appealing cast of characters at work, at home, and at play. The sounds, smells, and textures of everyday Roman life are vividly evoked as young readers march through the rain with emperor Vespian's centurions as they escort Lepidina over the mountains and visit a very important queen, witness a gladiator show at an arena, battle with Felix, and visit the bathroom with brothers and noble Romans, Titus and Marcus. Ancient Romans spring from the pages of this fun, fact-packed scrapbook that features pages blotted with fingerprints, splashes of oil, and squashed insects.
