Nick and Kat are on holiday in Rome with their parents.
So how do they end up facing the dangers of the Coliseum in ancient Rome - as gladiators?

Danger! This standalone book from Jonny Zucker's Toxic series is a fast-moving chapter book, filled with high-quality black and white illustrations to grab readers' attention.
The Toxic series reads are ideal for reluctant and struggling readers who are enthused by short, fast-paced adventure stories.
The cliff-hanger at the end of nearly every chapter certainly helps!
