Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Can a child ever rule the world? The answer would appear to be an unequivocal no. However, such was not always the case. In 1906, a baby named Pu Yi was born in China. He would rise to the position of Emperor of China when only two years old. In this book from the series, "Kids Who Rule" readers learn about the young emperor and the workings of his empire. Even today, Pu Yi is known as the Last Emperor. The book begins with an informative timeline and map of China, as it was in 1906, and the story proceeds in a chronological manner. Many words are highlighted in bold letters in order to become a part of the glossary. Illustrations sport warm earth tones and varying shades of blue, red, and purple. The pictures manage to move the story along even without the text. Two types of sidebars convey information. One type is written as if Pu Yi himself or people from the time were the authors. A second kind of sidebar grabs the readers' attention with facts about such topics as Chinese writing, horoscopes, and fashionable feet. The main body of text is laid out in a spread for every new topic. This book has particular appeal because it features a ruler who may be someone readers would not have known about before looking at this book. 2003, Peter Bidrick Books/McGraw-Hill Children's Publishing, Ages 7 to 12.
