In these two delightful history-mysteries, seven boys in Ancient Rome solve strange crimes . . . thanks to some help from their cranky teacher, a little bit of logic, and a lot of amusing misadventure. Yes, Rufus wrote CAIUS IS A DUMBBELL on his tablet at school, but no, he did "not "break into the schoolroom, did "not" tie up his teacher, and certainly did "not "paint his slur about Caius on the Temple of Minerva (even if it "is "in Rufus's own handwriting). Rufus is doomed unless his six classmates can find out who is "really "responsible. Every hour seems to bring a new, confusing clue . . . until the boys finally stumble upon someone who is not what he appears to be.

Review quote

"An original and humorous mystery story . . . tied neatly into a plot that has continuous suspense. . . . The boys are real in their mischief and eager deducing, and the historical details are so naturally a part of the story that the whole has a liveliness that the pictures suggest."--"The" "Horn Book"
