From celebrated author and illustrator Gary Northfield comes the exciting, hilarious and action-packed second title in this brilliant chapter book series, brimming with Roman facts.

After the huge success of Rumble with the Romans!, celebrated author and illustrator Gary Northfield creates another brilliantly fast-paced, funny and utterly bonkers adventure for Julius Zebra and his hapless pals to go on. Emperor Hadrian has one last favour to ask of the gladiator animals before he will grant them their greatest wish - freedom. They must go to the far-off and strange land of Britain to win over the crowds of his empire. But this will be no happy-go-lucky holiday... Instead of buckets and spades, our stripy hero and his friends will need all their powers and wits about them if they're going to survive their most wild and rebellious opponents yet. Cram-packed with jokes and bursting with action, this is a hilarious romp and mad-cap introduction to Roman Britain.

This book is funny and I like how it is set out with  funny comic strips and how the main characters are animals. I am studying the romans at school and its not a subject I liked but this book helped me understand more.
The language was easy to understand and very funny and I would like to read about other characters too as it helps me with my school work.

I love Julius Zebra and am now listening to an Audio book Rumble with the Romans. This is sort of like horrible Histories crossed with Madagascar so if you like those you will like this.

I like that this book is extremely funny (one part of the story the characters make fish costumes out of armour but then their escape plan won't work because they are to heavy to swim in).  This book is perfect for kids.  Boys and girls 5,6,7,8,9 and 10 will enjoy reading it.
I've read book one and two and I can't wait till the next book comes out.

It is very funny right from the start. All of the characters were really good and kept me entertained because every thing was so funny and different. At the end it leaves you on a cliff hanger, which makes me want to read the next book. I would recommend this book.

I like this book because of all the funny comic strips and how the main characters were talking gladiators which were animals.
The illustrations in the comic strips were clear.
The language was easy to understand and very funny.

A great way to introduce history to kids in a modern way. Julius Zebra is very amusing and a great book for reluctant readers as it has plenty of illustrations to keep them interested.
