Demi's "Genghis Khan" is a beautifully illustrated book depicting the life of the Great Khan.
The book is done in the style of medieval Timurid and Islamic histories. The artwork is exquisite, encompassing gold inlays contrasted with watercolors and detailed but elegant drawings. The illustrations themselves could tell the story alone.
Demi's book tells the story of a young Mongol named Temujin and his rise to become Genghis Khan, conqueror and ruler of the greatest land empire history has known. Written for school age kids, the text is simple and does not shy away from the harsh life of Genghis and the Mongols. It depicts Temujin's killing of his brother Bekter for stealing food (as the rest of the clan starved in exile) matter-of-factly. The author does not shy away from the reality of the Mongol conquests, depicting scenes of siege and warfare, but it is stated and then the story moves on to the next.
"Genghis Khan" is a great introduction to the man and the legend. This is the type of book that will fire kids' imagination and get them reading.
