John Heffernan and Kate Durack’s gorgeous Two Tales of Brothers from Ancient Mesopotamia just keeps collecting those great reviews! The latest is from ReadPlus blog.

These two stories tell of rivalry and bitterness, of forgiveness and love, of bravery and allegiance. The second story tells of Gilgamesh and Enkidu going out of the city to destroy a huge monster. This marvellous story full of blood and gore will appeal to primary people.
The illustrations are bright and vivacious, reflecting the images found in the temples and carvings left in the Middle East by civilisations of long ago.
