Before Quintus and his parents had money and moved into their house, the family lived in a small Roman apartment. Times were simpler back then, but no less spooky! In this tale, Quintus is 100% scared of the dark, but wants to appear brave in front of his parents. To make things worse, Quintus receives paranormal visitors night after night…or does he?

A scary story even Latin 1 students can understand with ease!

This book is a prequel to Quīntus et nox horrifica and could act as a stepping stone to the original for students who want to read what is now “the sequel” on their own once independent reading begins.

Features

  • 20 unique words (excluding names, different forms of words, and meaning established within the text)
  • 15 cognates
  • total number of words: 170
  • 30 pages of text (large font and many illustrations)

Information for teachers

This book is similar in reading level and scope to our first books read, Mārcus magulus and Olianna et obiectum magicum. It draws vocab from them, too. īnsula horrifica could also act as a stepping stone to the original for students who want to read what is now “the sequel” on their own once independent reading begins.

The content mirrors what has been our comparison of elite Roman villas and common apartments. This is part of our exploration of Roman topics in Latin 1, and this new book provides a backstory to the social mobility Quintus’ family experiences. 

The Index Verbōrum is rather comprehensive, with an English equivalent and example phrases from the text found under each vocabulary word. Meaning is established for every single word in this novella.

The author created audio files that really enhance the spooky feeling of this book. Find them here.
