Maggie shifted on her feet and peered around Mikey at the open door. A warm breeze blew into her room from the tunnel beyond the door.

“I’m not a wimp,” she repeated – this time, raising her chin and walking past Mikey toward the door. As she approached closer she heard what sounded like a stampede of hooves, booming down the tunnel.

She stepped through the door into the tunnel. Her feet found a stone corridor with trails of sand between its paving stones. Mikey followed and closed the door behind them. The door then vanished and yet again, Maggie was on the other side unsure of where she was or when she was.

Join Maggie and Mikey in this second installment of the Virtue Adventures. After lying to avoid being bullied, Maggie is filled with guilt when Mikey appears with another mission from God. This time our pair travels to Ancient Rome to witness what it means to be brave in the face of persecution especially for one’s faith. Will Maggie be able to stand up for what she believes in? Or will she lie in order to fit in again? 

Courage in the Colosseum is the second installment of the Virtue Adventures series.



Meet Maggie Murphy, a ten year old girl who lives in Mars, Pennsylvania with the most annoying younger brother. Like any kid, Maggie struggles with doing the right and helping others. However, that is all about to change when Maggie is suddenly commissioned by her quick-witted Guardian Angel, Mikey, to join him on a mission from God.

Travel back in time to places such as Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt as Maggie and Mikey save the fate of the world. Virtue Adventures gives a glimpse into history while also teaching readers about the importance of various classical virtues such as Justice, Courage, Hope, and Temperance.

Packaged in a way that kids will understand and enjoy, B.B. Gallagher has created a platform where kids can start a discussion with parents about the various virtues focused on in each installment. Just like Maggie, your reader will grow each day closer to God through reading and discussing ‘Virtue Adventures.’
