Hardcover, 64 pages, July 2005.

Long before Cleopatra there was Hatshepsut, one of the few females to rule Egypt. Children will be fascinated by this compelling and true account of the royal daughter who, upon the deaths of her father and husband, assumed the position of pharaoh of Egypt. Keenly aware that her country was unaccustomed to a female leader, Hatshepsut did much to quell their fears?from wearing traditionally male clothing to referring to herself as "he," and even wearing the false beard of a pharaoh! Though her people may have been cynical at first, Hatshepsut proved herself worthy of the throne, becoming a master politician and elegant stateswoman who ruled for more than 20 years.

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