Roodica and her family live in Roman Britain, and like many of the Ancient Britons are not enamoured of the ruling Roman population. Take for example Fatius Guttus, who has just dammed the local pond for a Roman bath house. This means that the local Britons will no longer be able to swim when they want – so Roodica swings into action along with her friends… and with a few well placed tricks, one of which involves quantities of woad, honour is for the time being restored. Any child who enjoys slapstick mixed up with adventure will enjoy this book – and for children in lower Key Stage Two, the book could be an amusing addition to learning about Roman Britain!
