A Tale of Cleopatra
From “A Tale of Cleopatra”:
Once upon a time, there lived a little princess named Cleopatra. She lived long long ago in Egypt, a far-off land in Africa. Cleopatra grew up to become the last and most famous queen of Egypt.
“… Cleopatra, girls don’t go to school. Girls learn how to dance and put on make-up,” barked Podenco, the king’s other greyhound.
“Both of you are wrong! I will go to the museum and learn about literature, medicine, the arts, science, languages, and philosophy from the best teachers in the world!” exclaimed the excited Cleopatra.
