Demi's meticulous, expansive story highlights the achievements of Alexander the Great, who conquered much of the known world (to the Greeks) in only 12 years. One of the most successful military leaders in history, he captured Persia, Egypt, Afghanistan, and India, gathering riches and blending cultures. Illustrated with Demi's customary skill (her trademark gold accents are a natural fit with the armor and weaponry of the combating armies), Alexander's conflicts and victories will delight young history lovers with their daring. Ages 8–12. (Sept.)
