Book Review: Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans

JULIUS ZEBRA: RUMBLE WITH THE ROMANS by Gary Northfield is a zany, fast-paced romp through ancient Rome starring a zebra, a lion, and a warthog.
Three captured African animals find themselves in the Colosseum where they must become gladiators to gain their freedom.
This first book in a new series concludes with a guide to Roman numerals and a glossary.
Librarians will find that this highly illustrated middle grade book is a hit with upper elementary children. The short chapters and one-stop action will keep even reluctant readers engaged.
