Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
A cast of characters along with brief narratives on each, and a map, serve as preface to this fast-paced presentation of Alexander's life in the combination of words and sequential art now made popular by graphic novels. Saunders is an anthropologist (author of People of the Jaguar, and Alexander's Tomb: The Two-Thousand-Year Obsession to Find the Lost Conqueror) and it would appear he knows whereof he writes. This reprint from Britain is part of the "Stories from History," series, with other titles including The Battle of Gettysburg, The Building of the Great Pyramid, and The Life of Anne Frank. This narrative begins with Alexander's birth, and moves the reader quickly through his early years, his friendship with Hephaestion, and the taming of the stallion Bucephalus. Subsequent chapters take us through battles, the push toward expansion of empire, Alexander in India, and the final years. A good deal of information is presented in these compact pages, and the format is likely to appeal to young readers. Occasionally the language strays into the colloquial—do we have to have Alexander "laying" in state? Each chapter features a "fast fact" in a text box. A time line, a list of "Did You Know?" questions, glossary, and index constitute back matter.
