Those treacherous Romans are ripe for a fall…and Julius is just the zebra to give them a push.
Northfield’s cartoonlike line illustrations win the day in this second Julius Zebra entry, capturing the story’s comical heart. Kids will be enamored by its ridiculous, action-oriented plot, and unwitting spectators to the bits of history Northfield manages to sneak in between the gags.
This sequel to 2016’s ‘Julius Zebra: Rumble With the Romans!’ brims with goofy humor and preposterous plot turns…As Julius and his companions join in fresh bouts of (bloodless) combat, readers ages 7-11 will pick up bits of classical language and history in this zany entertainment.
