With her signature comic-strip style, Marcia WIlliams takes us behind the scenes at some of ancient Rome's most famous moments. Meet Dormeo: gladiator, dormouse, berry-nibbler, and guide to ancient Rome. He'll take you on a tour of Rome's most famous moments and most colourful characters - from the temperamental gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus to the wolf-raised Romulus and Remus, from the birth of the Roman Republic to the death of Julius Caesar. On the way are fascinating glimpses of life as a Roman citizen, from families to festivals, gladiators to guards, as well as a look at some of Rome's best-known emperors (good and not so good). Vibrant, engaging, and packed with Marcia Williams's trademark warmth and humour, this graphic storybook is a young reader's ideal introduction to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In cartoon panels, the inimitable Williams offers snapshots of ancient Rome from the mythological creation of the universe to the fall of the empire. * Kirkus Reviews *
These busy cartoons range from minuscule to full-page and always invite close inspection. Crammed within, readers will find miniature charts, tiny maps, overhead diagrams of outdoor areas, lessons on daily life, and plenty of modern snark. It's an usual conceit pulled off quite well - by employing Dormeo as a humorous narrator, Williams is able to present atrocities imposed upon the lower classes of Roman people without overwhelming readers. Lots and lots of information here; prepare for this book to be renewed at least once. * Booklist *
A splendid big book, with bright and funny illustrations and packed with information * Carousel *
Perfect for KS2 children studying Ancient Rome, this will give a fascinating insight into the period in an eminently readable and enjoyable format. The cartoon-style illustrations march through the pages bringing the Romans to life and giving a new perspective * Parents in Touch *
An hilarious account . . . this is a splendid big book, with bright funny illustrations and packed with information * Carousel *
