    Absolutely brilliant

    Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans!, is the first book in a series about a Zebra called Julius. As daft as it may sound, I actually read book two, Bundle with the Britons! before reading this one (that one was a five star rating too). Whilst it was good to get to know the back story of the characters, I don’t feel that it actually lessened my enjoyment. Talking of enjoyment, you may be wondering why a 30 something woman would be interested in reading these kids books. Well, I was brought up on slapstick humour, think Laurel and Hardy, The Carry on Films, and even the older, none PC cartoons. This series of books reminds me of them and captured my attention, giving me a giggle from beginning to end. Gary Northfield has a talent for creating humorous, imaginative books. A gladiator fighting Zebra, who would of thought it! The characters are all completely wacky, with no social skills and they tend to just do the first things that come into their heads. There are black and white illustrations throughout, most accompanied by speech bubbles, or diagrams, such as Julius pointing out the difference between a horse and a zebra. He hates being called a horse. There is also a lesson in Roman numerals at the back of the book, along with a glossary too. This is a series of books that I can see both girls and boys really sinking their teeth into, and actually wanting to read. If you are after buying a book for a child, or teen for that matter, that you hope will grab them and have them eager to read, then I can 100% suggest this book, or even the series (there are three books currently published).
