Description
This is one of the oldest stories in the world, and it's about things that still matter to us today: friendship, fame, courage, happiness.
Gilgamesh and Enkidu are friends -- best friends. Together they can work wonders, fight monsters, brave earthquakes, travel the world But waiting in the dark is the one enemy they can never overcome.
Retold by award-winning author Geraldine McCaughrean, and illustrated with great power by David Parkins, Gilgamesh the Hero is a story that will linger in the imagination long after the book has been put down.
