Whispering Stories
Gladiator superstar, Julius Zebra, was the most famous and fearsome warrior in Rome, after defeating numerous opponents.

His battles hadn’t gone unnoticed by Emperor Hadrian, who offered him a deal, battle and win one more fight, and he would grant Julius his freedom. However, after winning the battle, Hadrian was nowhere to be seen.

News soon arrived that Hadrian was impressed with Julius, and as a result, he was sending him, and his friends, on a little trip to Britannia.

Unfortunately, their ide
4.5 stars. Whenever I had time I read a bit of this one today, and it was just fabulous.

I spotted this one at Library #3 and just had to have it, it just screamed at me to read it. :P

Though I definitely need to find book 1 as well, as I want to know more about Julius and how he got to be a gladiator. Yep, I never read the first book, and while I feel it isn't needed that much, as I could get the gist of the story within a few pages, I still want to check out the first book. Hopefully we will f

I thought it was good because some of it actually could have happened but some of it was just good, plain, funny fiction.
'We're off on our holibobs!' Why on earth that phrase makes me smile I don't know but it does and I love, LOVE this book! 'Julius Zebra: Bundle with the Britons' is the second book in the Julius Zebra series and I just can't wait to read more!

The story is about Julius, a zebra who is a champion gladiator of Rome. Julius is a bit of a celebrity and the book quickly introduces us to his other animal friends, Felix an antelope, Cornelius a warthog and Lucia a crocodile, to name a few. The story is

Julius and his companions are back after Rumble with the Romans, since Hadrian has not given them their freedom as promised after their last battle in the Colosseum. Julius and his friends the crocodile, warthog, lion, mouse and giraffe are sent to Britain to spread the news that Hadrian is a great guy. Not surprisingly, when they arrive, the reception is not great AND the animals they have to face in battle are much better than they are. Julius assesses the situation and

Julius is the star gladiator and can almost taste his freedom, when Emperor Hadrian turns the tables and sends Julius and his friends to Britain as a show of strength for the Roman Empire. Julius is supposed to defeat the British Animal Gladiators, only that doesn’t quite work out. When does anything ever go right for Julius?

I rather enjoy reading Julius misadventures as they are guaranteed to make me laugh. A large part of the first half of Bundle with the Britons is about Julius and h

After reading Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans! and enjoying it, I wanted more of Julius and his gladiator friends' adventures, and when I got this book, I read it up in one sitting, and it was great! The character were thought out, the humor was cool, the fight scenes were action-packed, and I was surprised to see Julius's brother, Brutus make a comeback! I also read Julius Zebra: Entangled with the Egyptians! to see Julius and friends have more adventures, and I can't wait to read the othe ...more

Leuk kinderboek voor de middenbouw.
Romeinse weetjes, omgetoverd in kindertaal.
Veel stripjes en plaatjes tussendoor, leest fijn afwisselend.

This is the second book in the Julius Zebra series. In Rumble with the Romans!, Julius was kidnapped and ended up as a gladiator in the Roman arena. He became very popular with the Romans, and made friends with a number of other captured animal gladiators.

In Bundle with the Britons, Julius is about to fight another fight, and Emperor Hadrian has promised the animals their freedom if Julius wins. Needless to say, things don’t go according to plan, and the animals end up being sent to Britannia.

Julius Zebra gaat samen met zijn vrienden naar Brittannië. In Rome hadden ze gewonnen in de arena, maar Keizer Hadrianus bezit hen nog steeds. Om vrij te worden moeten ze in Engeland nieuwe werkers vinden voor in Rome. Er worden verschillende onderwerpen zoals slavernij en afpersing besproken. Deze gebeurtenissen en andere historische gebeurtenissen worden op een leuke, grappige en spannende manier verteld. Het boek leest vlot door omdat er veel gewerkt wordt met tekstwolken. Hierdoor zijn er ge ...more
