About This Book
Meet the Teen Who Became a Queen!
Stunning illustrations make this biography of the legendary queen as beautiful as she was!
Queen of Egypt at the age of 18, Cleopatra had a passion to unite the world under Egyptian rule. Legendary leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony risked their kingdoms to win her heart, and her epic life has inspired countless retellings throughout history. This gorgeous picture-book biography, with vivid mosaic-style illustrations, traces the doomed queen's life, from her rise to power as a teenager to her suicide by snakebite at age 39.
A timeless story of love, war, and ambition, this pictorial biography is as sure to entertain as it is to educate. The text includes a bibliography, a helpful pronunciation guide, and notes on the historical sources for Cleopatra's life.
