Reviews

Bonkers but brilliant * angels & urchins *
[A] pleasingly daft romp. . . the book has a very Horrible Histories sense of humour and grounds its silliness with facts about gladiatorial combat. * Financial Times *
It's perfect for 6 to 8 year olds, and especially for those fascinated by the Romans as there are plenty of snippets of history to be picked up while enjoying the story. * Parents in Touch *
My favourite character is the warthog because he is always citing uninteresting facts, even at the very worst of times. I found this both funny and annoying and he reminded me of my brother. -- Reader Review * Guardian Children's Book Site *
Madagascar meets Gladiator in this exciting, action-packed and hysterically funny story brimming with entertaining Roman facts. * World Book Day *
... has a laugh out loud cartoon on nearly every page. * The Herald *
The comically classical way to learn about the Romans! * Lancashire Evening Post *
Brilliant! * Families South East London *
I thought that this book was thought up from one inventive brain, willing to make a mind-blowing book and they achieved just that. * The Guardian Online *
Completely ridiculous plot line and zany characters are highly entertaining and somehow manage to combine daft antics with historical facts. Great! * WRD *
As well as providing much hilarity Julius Zebra cunningly educates about Ancient Rome without ever feeling like a lesson [...] A wonderfully ridiculous book; full of fun it will educate and entertain in equal measures. Highly recommended. * The School Librarian *
Sometimes a book comes along that is pure joy, and this is one of them. * Literary Review *
This quirky, humorous book is part graphic novel, which makes it ideal for reluctant readers. * Washington Independent Review of Books *
