Queens. Warriors. Witches. Revolutionaries. History is full of sisters making their mark.

Meet incredible women in this nonfiction book for kids, from Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret to tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams. Authors (and sisters!) Olivia Meikle and Katie Nelson have scoured history for jaw-dropping stories of amazing siblings, including:

• Why Egyptian ruler Cleopatra went to war against her younger sister Arsinoë
• How Native American sisters Maria and Marjorie Tallchief became America’s first star ballerinas
• What made samurai sisters Nakano Takeko and Nakano Yuko take on an entire army

Through the stories of the sisters, readers will go on a whirlwind tour of women’s history, from the courts of Imperial China to the French Revolution. And you’ll discover that stories about sisters aren’t anything new—they can be traced back to ancient tales, from Greek goddesses to Maya mythology.
