The main character is a daydreamer named Leo that pretends to be a Roman gladiator, what s not to like I love a good children s book Or a good book about children Or a book for and about children is fine If it s good This one seemed to meander from good to great to mediocre.I enjoyed watching the adventuresome kid protagonist imagine himself as a gladiator hero in front of throngs of spectators And the story is definitely about how he imagines himself Or how he wants people to view him But he starts to do things in real life that he thinks make him look like a hero even though they compromise his morals There is something great about that.The book captures moments of shaming self talk with exceptional poignancy coming from someone who struggles with this very tendency myself And there are some engaging themes in the story about friendship and loyalty.There are also moments where I was sure a kid wouldn t say something like that Or things were simply just unbelievable A passing meteor suddenly fells buildings in town when it passes Not that it s impossible, but I definitely had moments where my suspension of disbelief crumbled down into a sinkhole.The author did some great work bringing so many pieces of the story into a focused thesis It made the book seem almost an epic fable despite its brevity But I found the book not as enjoyable as I d hoped And with some moments where the content or the language describing the boy s inner workings felt flat, overall I wasn t entirely impressed.Still, to me the story succeeds in remind
