              Felix and Livia are two runaways who are being pursued across the Roman empire, from the darkest, dampest corner of Gaul to the dry, desert sands of Tadmor. They must reach Rome by the Ides of April to rescue Livia's brother before he is sent into the arena to do battle with lion...s - and perhaps a vicious ostrich or two! Along the way, the pair are helped (and hindered) by a selfish sacred chicken, a foolish camel and a grumpy magic carpet as they encounter bandits, a shipwreck and a false accusation. Will they save Livia's brother in time, or will they all fall victim to the chicken's curse?

              From award-winning author Frances Watts comes an uplifting story that shows how happiness can be found in the simplest of things. A book for all ages. A rain-swept day...A heart-lifting flash of colour! A story about the joy to be had in life's simplest pleasures -especially when... they are shared- and finding happiness in the most unexpected places. A book for all ages. 'This is the kind of book that young children can pore and ponder over; the illustrations are simple but vibrant, complementing the text but leaving plenty of detail to ensure the reader will linger over each spread.' Four Stars, Australian Bookseller & Publisher '...this picture book is a little gem as the rat imagines the difference his stripy sock will make. The illustrations perfectly capture the emotion of the book. The rat's facial expressions are priceless and he is so cute. The text is 'heart-lifting,' to quote a word from the book. It's a book to make you smile and maybe it's also saying something a lot of us need to hear about what is important in life. 'This gentle book is sure to become a favourite with children and their parents. It would make a good story for before bedtime as it's not only short but leaves positive images in the mind. Especially great for 0- 3 years but will be enjoyed by those older as well.' Good Reading
