Destroy Troy by Charlie Carter

Title: Destroy Troy

Author: Charlie Carter

Published: Pan Australia, 2009

Pages: 88

Series: Book 3, Battle Boy

Snippet: "To the bitter end it will be."

Summary: Arrows are flying, fireballs are scorching the sky; soldiers are hurling spears and clashing swords - BB005 has landed in the middle off a battle between the Greeks and the Trojans.

Review: Destroy Troy is an interesting book.  I think of all the Battle Boy books I've read so far, Destroy Troy was the most interesting.  I think it was the most interesting because it was all about the battle of Troy which is something that really interests me.

While this is for younger readers it's definitely an entertaining read, and it teaches younger people all about history. 

The illustrations are all really good too.  I stopped and had a look at them and some of them caught my eye because they were really good.

I think the target audience for the battle boy series would be boys aged 8-10.

It's not too bad if you want to check it out sometime.

  1. Oh, thanks for the review. It looks like a good one for my 8 year old.

  2. I like reading about Ancient Times and Troy was as great battle..I would love to read this book and I think the kids from my class (internclass) would totally love it, if it was in Dutch.


Comments are always awesome!
