When Pharaoh Thutmose II died, he left an heir far too young to rule Egypt. His widow Hatshepsut stepped up to take his place. For at least the next 20 years, Hatshepsut ruled as Pharaoh King of Egypt in an era of prosperous growth and peace. When she died, her nephew Thutmose III attempted to smear her good name and wipe her memory from history. However, despite his efforts, his aunt Hatshepsut holds the title of most famous native Egyptian woman to ever rule as pharaoh; she also retains a legacy as one of the most successful female leaders in early history.

Review:  In60Learning is a new publishing brand that produces concise overviews for a range of topics.  At the moment it is historical and biographical but science and technology are coming soon.  You can check out the title they have got here.

They have a good range on topics, but one topic that I have been interested for quite a while was Ancient Egypt.  So I  wanted to learn about Hatshepsut: The Pharaoh-Queen of Egypt.

The writing was great and the book was filled with lots of interesting facts.  I enjoyed the writing style and the way the chapters were spilt up.

Overall I enjoyed this book.  The writing was great.  Hatshepsut was really exciting person to read about.  The whole idea of In60Learning was fantastic and would probably be something I would try again.

I ended by giving this book a 4/5.
