Description

REVIEWS:


 
8/1/07 School Library Journal
These books focus on an important ruler in Egyptian history and are told from the point of view of an individual participant with fictional dialogue and imagined thoughts. Cartoon illustrations, several per page, are quite funny. Information is imparted through blocks of text in different sizes and fonts, dialogue balloons, and "Handy Hint" boxes. The plotting against Cleopatra and Tutankhamen and the customs, violence, and life and death during their times are explained in short paragraphs. These fictionalized books provide an overview of material found in more depth in biographies such as Diane Stanley's Cleopatra (HarperCollins, 1994) and Brian Williams's Tutankhamen (Heinemann Library, 2002), and should be considered for recreational reading rather than for serious research.
