Julius Zebra: Rumble With the RomansNovember 2021

This month we are reading Julius Zebra: Rumble With the Romans by Gary Northfield. From the publisher:

Captured by Romans, Julius Zebra — along with Milus the scarred lion and Cornelius the clueless warthog — is transported from a smelly water hole on the African savanna to the ferocious clamor of the Colosseum, where the motley menagerie of friends must gear up to be . . . gladiators! Do they have what it takes to succeed in a world where only the meanest and toughest survive? Follow the madcap adventures of Julius and his pals through funny, irreverent text and zany cartoon-style illustrations, with an illustrated guide to Roman numerals and a handy glossary at the end.
