Julius Zebra Series : Titles in Order

Book 3
Julius Zebra is in ancient Egypt on his third madcap adventure. Will he and his friends make it out alive, or will they all end up entombed in a pyramid forever?

After being shipwrecked on the shores of Egypt, Julius Zebra can’t believe his luck: he’s been mistaken for a Horse God and given the royal treatment. Preened and pampered, Julius and his friends are treated to a lavish party and ferried down the River Nile. But when hapless antelope Felix accidentally stumbles upon the Tomb of Cleopatra, he steals a gem for his rock collection, unknowingly bringing a pharaoh’s curse down upon the group. With the Egyptians beginning to realize that Julius is not quite what they thought he was, the zebra gladiator and his friends are soon fighting for their lives in a series of hilarious hijinks.
Book 2
Think you know Julius Zebra? Think again! The handsome, fast-talking gladiatorial champion is sent on a zany adventure — to Britannia!

Before Julius Zebra can have his freedom, Emperor Hadrian sends him on one last mission. As the newly named People’s Champion, Julius must travel with his friends to a distant land to remind its people of the might of the Roman Empire. It’ll be just like a vacation! But when the motley menagerie of gladiators arrives in cold, wet Britannia, they don’t quite receive the welcome they were expecting. In fact, the Britons seem to hate the Romans. And the longer Julius and his friends stay in Britannia, the more they realize that they have a lot more in common with the Britons than they thought. After all, they’re all under Hadrian’s rule. But what can a ragtag group of fighting animals do about it?
Book 1
“Readers will applaud the Monty Python-esque exploits of this hoofed hero.” — Kirkus Reviews

Captured by Romans, Julius Zebra — along with Milus the scarred lion and Cornelius the clueless warthog — is transported from a smelly water hole on the African savanna to the ferocious clamor of the Colosseum, where the motley menagerie of friends must gear up to be . . . gladiators! Do they have what it takes to succeed in a world where only the meanest and toughest survive? Follow the madcap adventures of Julius and his pals through funny, irreverent text and zany cartoon-style illustrations, with an illustrated guide to Roman numerals and a handy glossary at the end.
