Description Njinga "The Warrior Queen" de Janie Havemeyer:

This series of historical accounts profiles strong women who took extraordinary measures to achieve and maintain power--including murder, deception, and black magic--examining the women's reputations in the context of their eras. Just how wicked were they? The books allow readers to decide for themselves if these infamous ladies were indeed heartless and evil or simply out of touch and making the most of their circumstances. Njinga, the Warrior Queen, fought fiercely to keep her West African people from slavery. Yet she engaged in slave trading herself, performed human sacrifices, and--some believed--murdered her nephew, the heir to the throne, and feasted on his heart. Though she was seemingly a terrifying tyrant, her other actions prove that she was also a freedom fighter. This smart, evocative story presents all sides of this fascinating woman who did whatever it took to win and protect her kingdom. Janie Havemeyer has worked as a museum educator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, an elementary school teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a social studies curriculum designer. For the past six years, she has been working as a literacy tutor. She writes narrative, nonfiction picture books for children, and is busy thinking about the next eccentric character whose story she wants to tell. Janie is the author of Catherine de' Medici "The Black Queen," and Njinga "The Warrior Queen," both in The Thinking Girl's Treasury of Dastardly Dames. Peter Malone has illustrated over twenty children's books for such publishers as Chronicle, Knopf, Putnam, Running Press, and Scholastic. In addition to creating gorgeous illustrations, he wrote the book, Close to the Wind, about the use of the Beaufort scale for measuring wind force at sea. School Library Journal called it "informative and utterly charming." He lives in Bath, England, with his wife, a restorer of paintings, and their two grown daughters.
