Czars and Czarinas is a humorous and anecdotal account of the first nine centuries of Russian history, perfect for a young adult and/or adult reader who wants a quick overview. The interactive book literally contains lots of bells and whistles: portraits that talk to you, slideshows, a singing introduction. Learn about fierce Mongol warriors, a seven-foot emperor who practiced dentistry on his subjects, and a ruler who played with dolls and waxed soldiers, even as an adult. This book includes artwork, photos, maps and charts. The book shows how a people managed to surmount great difficulties to become one of the most important nations in the world.
