Description - Wicked Warriors & Evil Emperors (V2) by Alison Lloyd

Fascinating dip into Chinese history, full of facts, fun and gore! Perfect children's book for kids aged 9 and up; especially boys.

Imagine you're made king at the age of twelve. You have plenty of enemies. You have a million soldiers armed with all kinds of awesome weapons, you have tons of gold and a network of spies. What would you do with all that power?
It happened to a real boy, who made himself China's first emperor. He was brilliant and brutal. His legend, and the stories of his wicked warriors, have lived on for thousands of years. You might call him evil, but when empires are at stake, people do incredible things.
