See You Later, Gladiator

Sam, Joe, and Fred go to Rome and have to fight a gladiator. They go to gladiator school and have to fight other people. Fred then has to fight a real gladiator and got in a food fight. They fight gladiators, slip away, and find the book. Read this story to find out if they make it back home safely.

I like this book because I love action. There was a lot of action when they almost got caught by the gladiators. My favorite part is when they fought the gladiator I didnít think they would get out of that jam. This reminds me of when my cousin fights with me.

I recommend this book to 2nd graders and up. Younger students might not be able to read all of the words.
