Guide Review - Tres Porculi, by Rose Williams
Altogether a charming rendition of the violent story. Children familiar with the story will be able to guess what happens, especially if they follow along by looking at the pictures. In addition, Rose Williams provides questions that challenge young listeners to pay attention, and enough guidance so that, although Tres Porculi is designed for instructors, parents with little Latin will be able take their homeschooled children through it.
