Carthaginian Fiction

My son (age almost 8) has developed an interest in the Punic wars.

Naturally I should like to encourage that interest. At the same time, I am

constantly trying to get him to read more–he is not a keen reader. Does

anyone know of a suitable kids’ book–preferably adventure fiction–about

the Punic wars? If so, please email me at with subject line

CARTHAGINIAN. Please nobody recommend Salammbo….
