With her signature comic-strip style, Marcia Williams takes us behind the scenes of some of ancient Romes most famous moments.

Meet Dormeo: gladiator, dormouse, berry-nibbler, and guide to ancient Rome. Hes about to lead a tour 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 Romes best-known emperors (good and not so good). Vibrant, engaging, and packed with Marcia Williamss trademark warmth and humor, this graphic storybook is a young readers ideal introduction to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire.
