This charming little book is based on the easy reader Rufus Lutulentus, but it can very well be read on its own. There are 18 stories, two per chapter, which slowly increase in length and difficulty. Rufus, the protagonist of both books, loves mud and being muddy and now he has a friend who feels the same. Together they explore the city and shock its sophisticated inhabitants who love cleanness. 

Due to the female protagonist in this booklet and so there are many feminine word forms, e.g. 'Rufus est Romanus' versus 'Lucia est Romana'.


  • 20 - 70 unique words per story (excluding names, different forms of words, and meaning established within the text)
  • 66 pages of text (large font)

Information for teachers

This collection of 18 stories supplies learners with over 1600 words of additional input that could be used to reinforce the vocabulary in each chapter of Rūfus lutulentus through Expanded Readings (ExR). Alternatively, use as a Free Voluntary Reading (FVR) option for all Latin learners, regardless of reading the orignal novella. 

The story expansions expose learners to far more words than in the original introductory novella (i.e. 25 to 70) in order to support reading the next level of novellas including about twice as many words. The first story expansions establish meaning of 18 cognates not in Rūfus lutulentus. The second story expansions add another 18 cognates, as well as 14 words not found in Rūfus lutulentus. Thus, the unique word count from reading both expansions comes to 70, with over half super clear cognates! The story expansions add details to certain characters and events from Rūfus lutulentus.
