The cover is a huge grabber -- sure to make decades of 6th-graders choose Cleopatra for their independent project in social studies -- and I love the whole theme of this blog! I'll put it on my blog roll so I can remember to check it out frequently and incorporate sayings into my vocabularly like, "I swear on my plumbs." Hooray, old critique-group friend!!

Congratulations, Vicky! You rock; you rule; you GO, Girl!

The book, no, scratch that, the sample, looked good at the BMP booth at IRA. The cover is a grabber! So v. different from the treatment of Alexander.
