Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
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.
