About The Paninis of Pompeii

Welcome to the last days of Pompeii as you’ve NEVER imagined them before!

Join fart-trader Caecilius, his wife, Vesuvius, and their ten-year-old son, Filius, in a bizarre world of accidental gladiators, pizza-emitting volcanoes and the legendary Ma-wol-n-f. You’ll meet the household servant, Slavius; thrill at the misadventures of Barkus Wooferinicum and generally have an uproariously hilarious time of it all.

Full of ludicrous characters – if you thought Mr Gum was weird, then get a load of the Ancient Pompeiians.

The Paninis of Pompeii is the first in a hilarious new series that will have 7+ readers howling with laughter.
