Even after the passing of many centuries, we are still awed by the pyramids, riveted by Greek myths, and intrigued by the bravery of Hannibal and Caesar. Highlighting 100 carefully chosen words—each of which is explained in just 100 words—this book offers entertaining insight into the major figures, events, and inventions of the ancient world. Among entries on the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, the Minoans, the Greeks, and the Romans, readers 9 to 12 will find an excellent overview (including info that will be new to many adults), while Gosia Herba's stylized illustrations pay homage to the art of the distant past.
