Author(s): Gary Northfield
From celebrated author and illustrator Gary Northfield comes the second adventure of this brilliant chapter book series. From the celebrated creator of Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans! comes a hilarious romp and mad-cap story set in Roman Britain, cram-packed with jokes and bursting with action. Julius and his pals must go to the far-off and strange land of Britain to win over the crowds of Hadrian's empire. But this will be no happy-go-lucky holiday. Instead of packing buckets and spades, our stripy hero and his friends will need all their wits about them if they're going to survive their most wild and rebellious gladiatorial opponents yet - the Britons! With a guide to Roman numerals and a fun, factual glossary in the back pages, this is a fast-paced, funny and utterly bonkers introduction to all things Roman Britain.
Packed full of amazing illustrations and hilarious jokes, Gary Northfield's latest book is side-splittingly funny and packed full of facts about Roman Britain. The Week Junior "Told in words and pictures, Julius's story is witty, ridiculous and just plain good fun." Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading
