Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans!
About this deal
I've studied the Egyptians at school and the history rang true although I wasn't quite sure if it's really true that Heter was a real horse God, although there was a statue of him. The training for gladiators was pretty fun to watch, if it wasn't for those annoying human gladiators who really need to get their heads out of their butts. Gee, he already said he was sorry and that the didn't mean it the way he meant it. And yes, he humiliated you, but come on, that is how it works in gladiator stuff. I did like that the animals were so dedicated to the cause. And that Plinie was helping them out afterwards with some more training. Oh, and I didn't even think Plinie was that annoying in this one. *cheers* When Pippin discovers she possesses magical powers, she uses her newfound skills to investigate the mysterious water shortage in Funsprings.This hilarious fantasy adventure will have readers rolling around with laughter. The word level and illustrations were just right. I liked Chapter 21 best because it's really funny because they dress up as mummies. I didn't like chapter 23 because it's so small! I would highly recommend this. Het boek gaat over Julius Zebra. Zoals de naam al verraad een boek over een zebra die in de tijd van de Romeinen leeft. Hij wordt voor een paard aangezien en daarom gevangen genomen. Later komen ze erachter dat het een zebra is en wordt hij gebruikt om te vechten in de Arena. Hij ontmoet allerlei dieren waar hij bevriend mee raakt en leer je, terwijl je het verhaal leest met heel veel humor, over de Romeinen.
My favourite character is Julius because he always helps other people. He is very strong, brave and courageous. My least favourite character is Septimus. I dislike him because he is unpleasant and because he painfully beats up Julius. I would like to start by saying that Julius Zebra is really funny and his friends are too! Their conversations make you feel part of their adventures.My favourite part was when Julius met his brother in the arena and they had to fight. My other favourite part was when Brutus helped his brother Julius. Both of these parts were really funny and made me laugh a lot.
Armistice Day: A Collection of Remembrance - Spark Interest and Educate Children about Historical Moments I really enjoyed this book because it was really interesting and creative. I also liked this book because teaches children about the Romans and how they lived in Roman times. I really liked studying about Romans and other parts of history and this book made me want to learn even more. The thing in the story I did not enjoy before the animals sailed to Britannia was the language because whilst the author described the animals lives, the words were not very imaginative. He decides he is going home on his own, despite the warnings of being alone from an annoying know-it-all warthog that sees him. Suddenly they are both caught up in a stampede. There is a stalking lion nearby. Julius and the warthog escape up a hill, only to fall into a deep dark pit – with the lion! An unusual choice, to put the funny animal into a historical setting, though this worked (but how do the animals all understand the Romans, and how can they talk and wield weapons...? Never mind).My favourite characters were Brutus and Julius. I liked Julius because he never gave up on what he had to do and was always courageous. I liked Brutus because he helped Julius. Páčilo sa mi, že kniha veľmi nenásilne, a pre deti aj pútavo, vysvetľovala niektoré skutočnosti Ríma. Deti sa dozvedia kto boli Rimania a Gladiátori alebo prečo usporadúvali hry v Koloseu, či stavali veľké sochy.
