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, this story was discovered over 150 years ago written on clay tablets buried in the desert and it was 100 more years before scholars decoded the text and so provide Henderson with the raw material for her beautiful retelling for children.
