Like every other school in the country, Davy's class are working on the Romans. Everyone is to do a piece of work based on the visit they made to a Roman fort and the best will get a prize at the Roman Feast planned by the school. Davy's problem is that bossy Molly from next door keeps stealing his ideas. That is until Davey draws inspiration from Julius Sneezer the Roman soldier. A funny and insightful story from the popular prize winning author of The Demon Headmaster.
