Synopses & Reviews
Like every other school in the country, Davey's class is learning about the Romans. Everyone is to do a presentation based on the visit they made to a Roman fort and the best will get a prize at the Roman feast planned by the school. Davey's problem is that bossy Molly from next door keeps stealing his ideas. That is until Davey draws inspiration from Julius Sneezer, the great Roman soldier. Information about Romans is interwoven with the story, including a hilarious trip to a Roman fort. The book addresses issues of competition, bossiness, and working on projects.
