A fun and thoughtful novel set in Ancient Greece for readers aged 8+

Young readers will enjoy travelling back in time with this Athenian adventure

Set in an Ancient Athens ravaged by war, this absorbing historical adventure has much contemporary relevance and is perfect for KS2 readers studying the Ancient Greeks.


Potone lives in Athens with her mum, her stepdad and her incredibly annoying brother, Plato. The city is at war with the ferocious Spartans. When Potone is not arguing with Plato, she is often overcome by her anxiety.

Her stepbrother, Demos, a young man with fire in his heart and a thirst for battle, brings his war cries to the streets of Athens and the heart of their home. But Potone and Plato's constant bickering has set them both up to be very good at debating. Can she overcome her fears and find a way to bring peace to her home and her city?

George Myerson has published many books for adults on classical philosophy and has taught reading in different senses at every level from helping in Reception to supervising PhDs in English. This is his first children’s book but is the result of a lifelong love of reading and making up stories with children.
