Wilhelm, Doug Alexander the Great: Master of the Ancient World, 135 pages. $23. NON-FICTION. Violence: PG-13 (lots and lots of killing).
Was Alexander of Macedonia a hero, freeing oppressed people from corrupt rulers, or was he a destroyer, bent on bending the world to his feet through whatever means necessary?
The Wicked History series is one of my favorite biography series ever. I have multiple copies of each book in my school library and the students never get tired of them. I’m glad to see that Scholastic is still committed to the series.
