A Song About Cleopatra from "Horrible Histories"

Ramose : prince in exile / by Carole Wilkinson. Fitzroy, Vic. : Black Dog Books, 2001.
Ramose was a real person, one of the three sons of the Pharaoh who disappeared during their father's reign. By imagining what happened to him, Wilkinson creates a series of books that are popular with students and that reveal much about daily life and beliefs in ancient Egypt. A good starting point for an historical study.
