Rome AD 36. The mighty Feline Empire rules the world. Queen Boudicat has declared war on Rome and wants Spartapuss to join her rebel army. Our ginger hero can’t see how a tiny tribe of Kitons can take on the mighty Feline Empire. But warrior queens don’t take ‘No’ for an answer. Boudicat is not for turning, she’s for burning!
Action-packed and full of historical details, the Spartapuss series follows the diary of a gladiator cat from Rome to the Land of the Kitons (A.K.A. Britain). Boudicat, the fourth book in the Spartapuss series, was awarded an ‘Exclusively Independent’ pick of the month for July 2009.
About the books:
The books are filled with marvelous characters and weird historical facts, which makes them ideal for both cat-lovers and history enthusiasts from around 8 years and upwards.
“An exciting series… really good books. I would recommend them to 10 year olds and upwards who enjoy thrillers that you can’t put down ‘til you’ve read the whole thing!”
