A brand new addition to Usborne Young Reading Series 3 chronicling the life and times of Julius Caesar, this information reader is particularly suitable for boys. Spanning the life of the great leader from his teens to his brutal assassination, and featuring events such as Caesar's capture by pirates as a young man, his military successes across Europe, encounters with Cleopatra and becoming dictator of Rome, this is a must-read for any child with an interest in history. Young Reading Series 3 is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.
