Horace and Harriet: Friends, Romans, Statues!

Lord Commander Horatio Frederick Wallington Nincompoop Maximus Pimpleberry the Third (or Horace, for short) has been a statue on a plinth in Princes Park for hundreds of years. But now he’s friends with Harriet and every time he leaves his pedestal he’s ready for all sorts of adventures. This time the two meet up in Rome where Horace poses as a gladiator, impresses as a statue, and is reunited with a long-lost relative. Packed with splendiferous pictures this is a rollicking read for children of five and up.
