Julius Zebra: Grapple with the Greeks! by Gary Northfield (Author, Illustrator)
Hardcover: 320 pages
Age Range: 7 – 11 years
Publisher: Walker Books
The fourth title in Gary Northfield’s exciting, action-packed and hysterically funny series brimming with entertaining Greek facts.
In the much-anticipated fourth Julius Zebra book, Grapple with the Greeks!, demi-god Heracles promises Julius and his chums a great reward if they can help him to find the lost Golden Apple. On this madcap new adventure, our unlikely heroes will confront the Minotaur in the labyrinth, trick a one hundred-headed dragon at the Garden of Hesperides and a dramatic visit to King Midas leads to a daring rescue attempt in the depths of the Underworld. But what will the ever-watchful gods on Mount Olympus have to say about their antics? A hugely enjoyable addition to this internationally popular series.
