"Readers will applaud the Monty Python-esque exploits of this hoofed hero." -- Kirkus Reviews 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.
