Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Author Kuntz has written an interesting book on The Roman Colosseum. In four chapters, she manages to describe the Colosseum, how it was built, what happened there, its rebuilding, and the role it plays as a tourist attraction and reminder of Roman history. The Colosseum, built in 80 A.D., was authorized by the Roman emperor Vespasian. The Colosseum was more than 600 feet long, 500 feet wide and 160 feet tall. The arena was the size of a football field. It was a beautiful structure with grand arches, columns, vaults, colorful ceilings and bubbling fountains. Hundreds of workers built the Colosseum, most of them slaves; it took eight years to finish the building. Although the Colosseum was a spectacular work of art, its intent was not as noble. Romans watched fights between animals, men and animals, and men against men. Although gladiators were brave and skilled men and admired by many, they often gave their lives so others could be entertained. After four and a half centuries, the Colosseum was shut down because Romans began to view the games and killings as wrong. In time, the Colosseum decayed with only half of it remaining. In the 1970s, there was renewed interest in the Colosseum and restoring it. Today it attracts millions of tourists who admire its architecture and historical significance. Color and black-and-white illustrations enhance the text. A glossary, further reading, and websites are also included. 2005, Kidhaven Press/The Gale Group, Ages 8 to 12.
—Della A. Yannuzzi
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Slim series titles that focus on how and why these early structures were built, construction obstacles, and cultural and practical significance. Restorations, and present conditions and uses are also examined. Information is presented in a straightforward manner with lots of description, but the writing is uneven. The one or two clear, captioned full-color photographs, diagrams, or computer-generated illustrations found on each spread are well placed and will aid understanding. Some descriptions would have benefited from visuals. Dimensions and measurements are given in the inch-pound and metric systems. The basic information is here, but lots of fine books already exist on these subjects. Libraries owning Elizabeth Mann's The Great Wall (2003), The Panama Canal (1998), and The Roman Colosseum (2003, all Mikaya) may not need these titles.-Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
