Grade 4-6?Biographies of Alexander the Great and Cleopatra are numerous. These series titles don't add anything new to those bodies of work, but could be used as basic introductions to the subjects. On the other hand, there is little available to describe the reign of Herod the Great to young people. However, the political and religious wrangling of the time is nearly impossible to sort out and condense in any kind of understandable manner in so short a book. So many personalities, so many intrigues and conflicting loyalties, and so much bloodshed are described that it's almost impossible to keep them all straight. All three titles contain excellent full-color and black-and-white photos, illustrations, and reproductions; good indexes; and brief but useful lists for further reading. Alexander has only one map, a drawback in a book about conquest in an unfamiliar part of the world.?David N. Pauli, Missoula Public Library, MT
