"These entertaining, deftly organized books will make terrific light-hearted additions to cirriculum units on ancient civilizations." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Stop the presses! What if ancient civilizations had daily newspapers? And they were amusing and compellingly informative? They might just look like this innovative series of historical nonfiction, presented in a unique, kid-friendly format.

Read all About it! In THE GREEK NEWS life in ancient Greece is presented in the form of a daily newspaper written at the time. As accessible as your morning paper, THE GREEK NEWS will give young readers the unforgettable sense of actually being a citizen of an ancient nation.
Back matter includes a time line, an index, and an explanation of Roman and Greek spellings.
Anton Powell is a leading author of books on the ancient Greeks for young readers. "Building glistening temples or warring with Sparta was not always 'ancient history.' It was once breaking news—and that is how it is told in THE GREEK NEWS."
