Apparently Roach translated Horace's poem from Latin to English, and illustrated the story as well. Rusticus Mus and Urbanus Mus are in an ancient Roman setting this time, and Roach decorates her little book with plenty of nods to the time of Horace. In addition to mice, each page includes something Roman from that time - a plant, a mosaic, even extinct Roman dogs that chase the mice away at the end. It's only mildly interesting; the premise is far more interesting than the book itself.

Very cute. Based on Horace's Satire II, vi. Accessible to children.
