Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice
If you’re looking for a reference book to help you write a report on Cleopatra, this isn’t it. However, if you’re looking for a graphic novel about a 15-year old girl who is sent into the future, hates algebra, gets sent to detention, is a whiz at using slingshots and ray guns, and is looked at as the prophesied savior of the galaxy, you’ve found your book. While playing in ancient Egypt one day, Cleo (that’s what she like to be called) uncovers a secret doorway behind which she finds a tablet that transports her into the far future. Once there, she is put into training that will help her save the galaxy. She doesn’t save the galaxy yet in this book, but is sent on a test mission where she has to use her skills and training to get a key while escaping from a local tribe that is protecting the key and from mummified robots.
I liked the drawings in the book and the story, too. There’s another book coming out next year and I will be looking for that one. Boys will enjoy the fighting, girls will enjoy Cleo as a strong girl.
