Product description

It’s a chariot race with goats! Will anybody bleat you? If you know about the Romans, you’ll know: 1) it’s hard to wear a toga without looking daft. 2) That’s why they spend lots of time naked in the bath. 3) They love chariot races, which are like an ancient Formula One. Well, Perilus is a typical Roman boy. He loves driving his homemade chariot (pulled by the family goat), and dreams of being in the Circus Maximus one day. He has the cart. He has the goat. He’s even named for danger. And now it’s race day, and he’s finally got his big chance. Don’t forget your silly helmet!

  • Historically silly fiction by top author Jeremy Strong
  • Brings Ancient Rome to life in a story full of laughs
  • Jeremy is the author of My Brother’s Famous Bottom
