Hardcover, 64 pages, July 2005.

Educated by the acclaimed philosopher, Aristotle. Leader in the Greek Army by the age of 16. King of Macedonia at 20. Any of these alone could have earned him his legendary moniker, yet these credits are but a sampling of the myriad achievements of Alexander the Great. Children follow the story of this historic leader from his beginnings as royal son to his education in philosophy and military training, up through his victorious conquests of Asia Minor and the Persian Empire. Readers may be surprised to learn that many of Alexander's combat strategies are still widely studied and employed today. Period artwork, quotes by and about Alexander, and photographs of ancient artifacts help illuminate the life of this brilliant politician and military genius.

Dimensions (in inches): 6 3/4 x 9 1/2. Ages 8 to 12.
