Grand Rapids, Mich. : Eerdmans

IL 5-8, RL 6.0
thousand years ago, there was probably a real king in the city of Uruk
by the name of Gilgamesh. The Sumerian city is now part of Iraq.
Some two thousand years later, the tale of Gilgamesh was carved onto twelve
stone tablets. Although the tablets were broken and pieces missing,
the story has been told and translated into many languages. This
is thought to be the oldest written story in history. In this adaptation
of the story, McCaughrean tells us of the wanderings and the adventures
of King Gilgamesh and his faithful companion Enkidu.
