Cleopatra: Queen of Egypt - Clint Twist



Released November 2012


Templar/Candlewick

Book Review by Bob Walch

The woman behind the myth emerges in this richly illustrated story of the iconic queen’s life. Featuring a fictional journal that invites the reader into Cleopatra’s inner world, this is a beautifully designed guide featuring lots of illustrations and interactive extras such as flaps behind which you’ll discover historical facts and pop-culture references.

The sections of the oversized book cover the queen’s youth, her royal family, the military conflicts during her reign, Cleopatra’s relationship with Antony and her final legacy. 

Not only will children interested in Roman history and the story of Egypt’s most famous queen find this entertaining, but I think adults will also find it informative.
