Synopsis

Avoid Being Cleopatra by Jim Pipe

Born in 69 BC, this is the story of your life as one of the most famous women in the world. Your childhood is spent in exile after your sister leads a rebellion against your father. Your siblings will all become your enemies; you will throw the most expensive dinner party ever and be part of one of the most famous couples in history. Never able to relax, your life is filled with political intrigue and betrayal as you attempt to protect Egypt from the growing might of the Roman Empire. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like to have this famous boy-king whose death is so much more famous than his achievements in life. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title and ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers. It fits into Key Stage 2 History and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5 -14.
