Cleopatra was much more than a Hollywood icon. With a mildly irreverent and highly entertaining voice, Vicky Shecter cleverly debunks many historical misconceptions of Cleopatra’s rule. This is history at its best and absolutely most fun-to-read.
“Shecter's solid research is evident in her account of events as well as the back matter, which includes informative notes, a time line, a glossary, bibliographies of primary and secondary sources, and source notes for the illustrations.” —Booklist
“A lively, informative, and aggressively informal portrait of Egypt's last and most famous pharaoh.” —Kirkus Reviews
Vicky Alvear Shecter is the author of Alexandar the Great Rocks the World, a Junior Library Guild selection and a Voice of Youth Advocates Honors List selection for nonfiction. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
