It explores his origins and his early life all the way to his adult life of his rise in power of being of the greatest leader of all time.

A biography of Genghis Khan who was a military strategist and "the supreme master of the largest empire ever created in the lifetime of one man". This biography tells the story of Genghis from birth to death and the rise of his empire. The illustrations are beautiful as the author ties a theme of metallic gold into all illustrations. The use of the metallic design provides a sense of empire and rule of the Mongolians.

The book has 64 pages which makes its a rather long read, although it is an easy read. The author uses the structure of several sentences on each page. The illustrator uses a specific structure for the illustrations as well.
As the biography is of a military strategist, it does come with violent tendencies, therefore, I would want to use this with older students. ( )
