9780763644444: Gladiators

Reimagine ancient feats of courage and strength — and relive gladiators’ triumph and despair — with this extraordinary set.

Unfold a spectacular model of the world’s most awe-inspiring amphitheater — the Colosseum — and enter an ancient world where, for three hundred years, gladiators pitted their strength and skill against one another. This exciting set includes:
— A sophisticated pop-up scale model of the Colosseum
— A forty-page book describing a day at the games — for both a Roman citizen and a slave
— Eight gladiator cards identifying weapons and fighting styles
— A map of the streets and buildings of ancient Rome
— A diagram of the Colosseum and its underground tunnels
— Game pieces and rules for playing the ancient Roman game of tabula

About the Author:

Toby Forward is the author of SHAKESPEARE'S GLOBE: AN INTERACTIVE POP-UP THEATRE. He lives in England.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–5—Marcus is a slave to a beast master who provides animals and gladiators for entertainment in ancient Rome. Lucius is the son of a senator. Both boys are going to the Colosseum for the first time. Through their eyes, readers are able to experience the games from two different perspectives: Lucius as a spectator who saves an elephant and Marcus as participant hoping that his adopted father survives the games and is granted freedom by the emperor. Though the ending is a bit contrived, the text and realistic color illustrations do not hold back in showing how gruesome and bloody the Games were. Sidebars and insets contain historical facts and are accurate except for some confusion with the time periods between the Republic and Empire. Additionally, this slim volume is part of a bigger kit that includes a three-dimensional pop-up of the Colosseum, a map of Rome and the arena, and pieces for the game Tabula, which was played in ancient Rome. A great idea for getting kids interested in history and perfect for individual purchase or displays, but not a practical item for library circulation.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA
