Join the Binkertons --- twins Josh and Emma and their little sister Libby --- as they head to the Good Times Travel Agency hoping to visit the next Olympic Games, but end up in Ancient Greece instead!

Adventures in Ancient Greece is an exciting mix of adventure and historical information about life in Greece in the fifth century BC. Kids will learn about the Greek gods, the birth of democracy, Greek home life --- and much more. They'll love the book's contemporary comic-book look, while parents, teachers and librarians will admire the well-researched story line and solid factual information.
