Alexander the Great Rocks the World

By Vicky Shecter

Alexander wasn't your typical teenager. When he was sixteen his father left town on business for a month and put him in charge-not of the house, of the whole country. By eighteen, he was a general. By twenty, he ruled all of ancient Greece. By twenty-five, he had conquered ancient Persia. By thirty-two, he was king of the world. So what went wrong?
