Cleopatra Rules!: The Amazing Life of the Original Teen Queen (Paperback)
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.
Cleopatra was much more than a Hollywood icon. With a mildly irreverent and highly entertaining voice, Vicky Shecter cleverly debunks many historical misconceptions of Cleopatras 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
