Description

[series copy] A wonderful new series of beautifully illustrated picture-book biographies, featuring great leaders, heroes, pioneers, inventors, and scientists from the past. Each fully illustrated book tells the story of a remarkable person from the past whose life has had an impact far beyond his or her own time. Young children love great stories, and What's Their Story? is the perfect way to introduce them to the giants of our past. The story of Alexander the Great is one of ambition, conquest, and glory. By the time he died at age 32, in 323 B.C., he was leader of an enormous empire that stretched from Greece in the west to India in the east. His remarkable personality shines through this heroic story of battles, sieges, and victories.show more

Review quote

"Highlighting dramatic moments and adventurous deeds as well as clarifying the cultural context of each story, Alan Marks expressive line drawings with watercolor washes add greatly to the books' appeal. Because the writing does not talk down to young readers, the books would also serve slightly older students looking for brief biographical accounts of individuals."--Booklistshow more
