Syra encounters various animals around Rome on her quest for a pet. Familiar Pisoverse characters make appearances throughout, such as the arrogant Terrex, who we learn has a pet ape he doesn’t like and never named, and a pet peacock he adores, named Pāvopapī!

Although this companion text is based on the novella Syra sola, you don’t need to have read the original. This book can exist independently.


  • 35 - 85 unique words per story (excluding names, different forms of words, and meaning established within the text)
  • total word count: 2,000
  • 66 pages of text (large font and many illustrations)

Information for teachers

In Syra et animālia we visit many well known places in Rome. Character descriptions are given for both humans and animals, and we learn what the different animals were used for in ancient Rome. And we learn the Latin names of several wild animals, like the camelēopardalis.

Aside from providing additional exposure to the vocabulary from the original novellas, the FVR readers support the transition to novellas at higher levels. For example, a learner understanding the 29 words of Syra Sola will be in a much better position to read the 58 words of Drūsilla et convīvium magārum after reading the companion text, Syra et animālia (35-85 words).
