From the jacket write-up: "Sun and Moon were the twin son and daughter of Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and the Roman General Mark Antony. They lived in the great toyal palace in Alexandria, surrounded by nurses, tutors, attendants, and slaves, and the thing they most wanted to do was to venture outside the walls of the palace and visit the Pharos, Alexandria's lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the world. Then one day Sun's tutor did agree to take him to the Pharos, but Moon's nurses ruled that because she was a girl she should be left behind. What happened to Moon, after she decdided to take things into her own hands after Sun left, makes an exciting and realistic tale with which modern girls will readily identify, for it shows a little girl's determination to have adventures in her own right. This easy-to-read story by a distinguished novelist is rich in the atmosphere of ancient Egypt and its people and gives the reader a glimpse into the marvelous city that was Alexandria." The author of some sixty books (at date of publication), Mitchison has traveled widely and in Egypt where she helped start a primary school.
