History Spies: Escape from Vesuvius by Jo Foster

Pompeii, AD 79: Vesuvius is about to erupt. The Department of Historical Accuracy needs a History Spy with nerves of steel to find out what the city was really like...Your mission: find out what happened at a gladiator battle, what went on at the luxurious banquets, and why everyone in Pompeii was so smelly! Finally, witness the eruption that buried the city for 2,000 years. Join top History Spy Charlie Cartwright in his adventures as he travels through space and time, dodging bombs, dinosaurs and erupting volcanoes.
