Zephyr How did "A Pet Banana" get on here?!


message 2: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited May 02, 2015 11:03AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Where on the list is it?

ETA: Found it; will remove. In no way is a child's picture book about bananas a historical novel about ancient Rome!


message 3: by Rino Hashim (new)

Rino Hashim H. can anyone recommend any historical fiction circa the fall of Rome?
