Julius Zebra

Julius Zebra: Entangled With The Egyptians! (2017)

After being shipwrecked on the shores of Egypt and mistaken for a Horse God, Julius can’t believe his luck! Soon he and his bedraggled friends will be living it up in the city of Alexandria; preened and pampered like gods. Then a fancy boat procession will take them down the River Nile to Memphis where a lavish party will be thrown in Julius’s honour – as well as an obligatory tour of the Pyramids. BUT it is this very tour that seems to signal the end to their glorious fortunes in Egypt. On a visit to the Tomb of Cleopatra, Felix is unable to resist a rather lovely looking treasure for his rock collection… He pockets the jewel and immediately a curse falls upon the group. And so the ridiculous adventure begins where Julius fights for his life as the Egyptians come to unravel the truth and realize that he is not quite what they thought he was…

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.

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.
