Summary
The famous eruption of Mount Vesuvius that snuffed out life in Pompeii and buried the town has long been a fascinating moment in history for children. This book presents that dramatic story with Mary Pope Osborne's brief text and with stunning frescoes created by Bonnie Christensen, using the same colors, style, and technique as the ancient frescoes unearthed at Pompeii. In addition to the destruction of Pompeii and the rediscovery of the ruins nearly 1,700 years later, the book shows what daily life was like in this prosperous Roman town in the year 79 A.D
Summary
Examining the art, buildings, and pieces left behind after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., the story of Pompeii and what life was like for its residents is presented in an illustrated guide about a thriving ancient Roman city
