The series is an excellent way to introduce young readers (6+) to the world of ancient Greece and Rome; they make good class readers.

Author Robin Price says: :
The books were great fun to research. This time I’ve set a puzzle that runs across all four books. During the time period I am writing in – when Nero was Emperor – the famous games in Greece were in a sad ‘decline’. The Romans introduced some new ideas to the ancient competition in order to make them more exciting – like getting boxers to fight with iron gloves!“
Each Olympusss games book features 15 drawings by Chris Watson (who designed the cover for our Beowuff books). They are just 96 pages long – about half the length of the original Spartapuss books. The text is larger too. This makes them easier to read than the original Spartapuss series.
The next book in this series is The Eye of the Cyclaw
