Little Prince: An Epic Tale from Ancient Iraq

By Kathy Henderson

Illustrated by Jane Ray

A fiction format reissue of Lugalbanda for confident readers.

From the land we now call Iraq comes the story of a young prince's extraordinary adventures. On his way to war with his older brothers, Lugalbanda meets the magical Anzu bird, who gives him the power to be strong, tireless and run like lightning. Lugalbanda uses his new power to help resolve the war peacefully and goes on to become a great ruler. Older than the Bible, the Koran and the Greek and Roman myths, this story was discovered over 150 years ago written on ancient clay tablets buried in the desert and it was 100 more years before scholars managed to decode the text and so provide Kathy Henderson with the raw material for her beautiful retelling for children.
