Additional Information

For Peter, it was just another day of waking up to his mother yelling from the small kitchen in the small house they shared. The image he saw in the bathroom mirror that morning would change everything. Follow Peter in this first book of his journeys. Written for Latin students who read at the intermediate-low to mid level, this fantasy of magic and intrigue is just over 4600 words in length and is based on a vocabulary of 330 unique Latin words (not including different inflections of the same word). The verbs are limited entirely to the 50 Most Important Verbs list developed by Latin teachers on the Latin Best Practices Listserv.

Latin teachers who have been influenced by modern language teaching methods, including Comprehensible Input and TPRS, have witnessed a number of beginner-level texts aimed at secondary school students produced in several languages. Latin has noticeably lacked such materials for some time. Dr. Robert Patrick's novella, "Itinera Petri: Flammae Ducant," and the recently published "Pluto: Fabula Amoris," by Rachel Ash and Miriam Patrick, have begun to fill this void for Latin and bring true extensive reading material into a Latin classroom.

Patrick's prose is written for an intermediate-level Latin student. Students who have had exposure to basic Latin grammar can read this text with a degree of fluency. His sentences are clear and straightforward, and the plot will engage students right from the beginning. The characters, without giving any details away, are varied and interesting, and each one provides another twist to the story's development. Limiting the... Read more
This short book is a great example of how "Comprehensible Input" can use grammar forms such as indirect statements, subjunctives, and supines without them being an obstacle to student understanding. Students can understand the story without needing to parse every form and word (an advantage to the limited vocabulary) and get a feel for what "reading" as opposed to "translating" can feel like in Latin. There's lots of action to move the story along and I think my own students at the 3rd and 4th year level would enjoy the chance to try their skills as they read about Peter's quest of magic and monsters, family and flames.
This is really great (in the style of Harry Potter). If you are at least familiar with the idea of the subjunctive, gerund etc (you don't have to be perfect) you can actually enjoy this story. And the author intentionally uses various meanings of words like "ago" (with footnotes). It encourages reading with understanding. There is a vocabulary at the back.
