‘Funny warm and clever these books provide informative and thought provoking entertainment’
Gladiator is a tale in the ‘Dream Master’ series in which the main character, Cy, is able to control his own dreams. Would that we could all master this technique. What would we do? In this book Cy flits between his school volcano project and his dream, the latter centred on Pompeii just before the eruption of Vesuvius. Snippets of historical facts are revealed as the characters of Pompeii are seen living their lives. This book is worth reading from that point of view. Tension is engendered as Cy realises what is going to happen to his new found but dream friends.
