In a rhyming romp through dinner, the future leader of the Roman Republic learns to eat a balanced meal and finish everything on his plate

It’s time for little Julius, who will grow up to become the most powerful person in the Roman Republic, to put on his toga, attend the dinner banquet, and eat his fowl, boiled camel’s feet, baked dormouse, and peas! It’s tough finishing everything on one’s plate every night—for kids and future Caesars alike.


"An entertaining, giggleworthy blend of gastronomic history and fiction."
Kirkus Reviews
