Madagascar meets Gladiator in this hilarious, exciting and action-packed new illustrated chapter book series from celebrated cartoonist Gary Northfield. From the hilarious, celebrated cartoonist Gary Northfield - author of The Terrible Tales of the Teenytinysaurs! - comes a brand-new illustrated chapter book series set in Roman times! From a smelly watering hole deep in the heart of the Serengeti to the ferocious clamour of the Colosseum, join Julius Zebra and his motley menagerie of friends as they gear up to be ... gladiators! Only if they win the love of the Roman crowds will they win back their freedom. But do Julius and his pals have what it takes to succeed in a world where only the meanest and toughest survive? Madagascar meets Gladiator in this exciting, action-packed and hysterically funny story brimming with entertaining Roman facts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Bonkers but brilliant * angels & urchins *
[A] pleasingly daft romp. . . the book has a very Horrible Histories sense of humour and grounds its silliness with facts about gladiatorial combat. * Financial Times *
It's perfect for 6 to 8 year olds, and especially for those fascinated by the Romans as there are plenty of snippets of history to be picked up while enjoying the story. * Parents in Touch *
My favourite character is the warthog because he is always citing uninteresting facts, even at the very worst of times. I found this both funny and annoying and he reminded me of my brother. -- Reader Review * Guardian Children's Book Site *
Madagascar meets Gladiator in this exciting, action-packed and hysterically funny story brimming with entertaining Roman facts. * World Book Day *
... has a laugh out loud cartoon on nearly every page. * The Herald *
The comically classical way to learn about the Romans! * Lancashire Evening Post *
Brilliant! * Families South East London *
I thought that this book was thought up from one inventive brain, willing to make a mind-blowing book and they achieved just that. * The Guardian Online *
Completely ridiculous plot line and zany characters are highly entertaining and somehow manage to combine daft antics with historical facts. Great! * WRD *
As well as providing much hilarity Julius Zebra cunningly educates about Ancient Rome without ever feeling like a lesson [...] A wonderfully ridiculous book; full of fun it will educate and entertain in equal measures. Highly recommended. * The School Librarian *
Sometimes a book comes along that is pure joy, and this is one of them. * Literary Review *
This quirky, humorous book is part graphic novel, which makes it ideal for reluctant readers. * Washington Independent Review of Books *

“Gary Northfield has a talent for creating humorous, imaginative books”

Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans!, is the first book in a series about a Zebra called Julius. As daft as it may sound, I actually read book two, Bundle with the Britons! before reading this one (that one was a... More
