From the bestselling author of Horrible Histories...

387 BC

Rome is under attack from the vicious Gauls and the barbarian
army is now preparing to besiege the Temple of Juno on Capitol Hill,
home of Brutus, a trainee priest. The temple's inhabitants are offered
help from the army of Lord Furius, but are not sure if he is to be
trusted. However, when rescue eventually comes it is from an even more
unlikely source...

A tale based on one of the most famous of all Roman legends, full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
