AD 113The young boy Pertinax helps his grandmother prepare a feast in Pliny's household. As all the workers are busy in the kitchen, the young boy keeps Pliny company in the garden.
He is told a story by the great Pliny himself. The tale is of a terrifying ghost that haunted a garden. But there's no truth in ghost stories ...or is there?
A tale based on a key moment in Roman history, full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
