Publisher's Description

GLADIATOR explores the world of the gladiators, from their humble beginnings as slaves to their schooling as gladiators and their often violent death in the arena, and looks at their influence on our lives today.

Author Bio

Richard Watkins is a full-time toy designer who loves old monster movies and toys from the sixties. He became fascinated with gladiators at age twelve when his parents traveled to Italy and brought back a book filled with stories of ancient Rome. He lives in West Chester, Ohio, with his wife and two daughters.

Editorial Reviews

"The heroic and bloody story of the Roman gladiators is retold in Watkins's debut work, a comprehensive and vividly illustrated guide that will impart his obvious passion for the subject to budding historians." Kirkus Reviews

"Watkins handles a difficult subject well, stressing the games as so fixed in the history and politics of the Roman world that reminders of their long duration can be seen today. If any single title can turn sports-minded young people into students of history, this is the book to do it." School Library Journal, Starred

“This eloquent history will make gladiators seem as real for today’s readers as they were over 1,500 years ago.” Publishers Weekly, Starred

“A winner for students and browsers alike.” — Booklist, starred review Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
