I wrote a new book. It's entitled Ovidius Mus. Ovidius Mus is a wealthy Roman mouse who likes to tell stories. He lives in a mouse hole in ancient Rome. He has a beautiful pad replete with frescoes, mosaics and imagines stories to tell while he waits for his paramour, Fabia to arrive so they can go to the convivium of his patron, Marcus Valerius Mus. It is the most beautiful book I have written - fully illustrated with felted art mice in ancient Roman dioramas. It's for advanced beginners - 175 unique unglossed words, full glossary and simple sentence structure. I love it. I hope you do too. Link to purchase is here.

I updated some of the material on Leo Molossus, my second book published on Amazon. Purchase link is here. I added a blog entitled "The Deeper Meaning" and figured out how to add pictures from the book to the slide show that accurately represent the pages. It's on the blog entitled "Look Inside the Book"

Well, I am sick. Not so sick to feel justified spending the day in bed but just sick enough that getting out of the house seems like more energy than I currently have. So, I wrote a new blog - actually, I expanded the blog on numbers and added two games to the post. It's under Beginning Activities. Click here.

I added a version of "Mala Ad Mala" to Card and Board games. Prep for this game has been simplified for the busy teacher without affecting students' enthusiasm. My class loves this game. It's a good way to review vocabulary and grammatical structures you want students to practice.

New blog tab; Teaching Case. On it, I've started to add those activities that have engaged and helped foster understanding of how to use noun cases. It's under the "Stuff is Here" tab or just click this link.

The book is here - I am now beyond excited and terrified it will be filled with typos or printed upside down or will otherwise be awful. Somehow, the day after I wrote the book, another story immediately wrote itself in my head - new characters, new ghosts. That was unexpected. Also I wrote a new blog under white board games - play tested numerous times this year. I call it Quid Est? and the link is here:

For the past two years, I have been working on a graphic novella in Latin for the intermediate student. I'm very excited by the prospect of the project coming to fruition. Publication date looks to be sometime in May. Details about the book can be found on page TRES FABULAE HORRIFICAE.
