A real-life hero, Alexander is one of the most powerful and flawed characters in world history. His successes are legendary, and even he thought he was more god than man. Written with a fun, kid-friendly tone, this biography of Alexander the Great gives all the factual details of his life--from childhood to his early death at age 32--and discusses the legends associated with this larger-than-life man. Many historic quotes are included, from such wise ones as Homer, Aristotle, Plato, and Alexander himself. Interiors will include maps, photos of artifacts, and other illustrations.
