We are very much looking forward to the visit of comic book artist and author Gary Northfield to SHS next Thursday. Gary will be joined by Years 3 and 4, along with Year 2 from Shrewsbury Lodge, as he talks about his series of books about Julius Zebra.
‘From the hilarious, celebrated cartoonist Gary Northfield – comes a brand-new illustrated chapter book series set in Roman times! From a smelly watering hole deep in the heart of the Serengeti to the ferocious clamour of the Colosseum, join Julius Zebra and his motley menagerie of friends as they gear up to be ... gladiators! Only if they win the love of the Roman crowds will they win back their freedom. But do Julius and his pals have what it takes to succeed in a world where only the meanest and toughest survive? Madagascar meets Gladiator in this exciting, action-packed and hysterically funny story brimming with entertaining Roman facts.’
