About the Author
Suzanne Strauss Art taught history and social studies for 16 years at a private school in Massachusetts. During that time, she also wrote a series of ten "kid-friendly" history books, designed to pique a student's curiosity and inspire him/her to delve more deeply into the "why's and wherefore's" of cultures that existed long ago. The subjects of her books range from ancient Egypt to late imperial China. Today, when she is not writing, Suzanne visits classrooms in her area to share her love of history with middle school students.
