The Poisoned Honeycake by Caroline Lawrence


For Ages 7 to 9
Review by Roman Fiction Minor (aged 7)

Orion Children’s Books
Paperback 96 pages

The Poisoned Honeycake is a book about a boy called Threptus, who is a poor boy. The man who looks after him is a fortune teller called Floridius. Floridius loses his powers. Threptus has to go back down in the sewers to spy on people. Then he ate a mad honeycake, but it belonged to the God of voices, and he took his voice away.
I think the book was teaching you all about Roman life. I think it is a good book to read and you will enjoy it. It was exciting and I hope Caroline Lawrence will write some more books the same.
