An age-appropriate introduction to the oldest work of fiction we have. First in a trilogy.

Very much in the spirit of the prior two books. The illustrations use a suitably darker palette. Zeman interprets the lion in the famous Gilgamesh statue as a companion, not an adversary. The story is even more loosely interpreted or less close to the canonical version, as Enkidu returns to comfort Gilgamesh while the boatman and Gilgamesh's destructive violence is omitted entirely. The expressions on the lion cub's face are entertaining.

The second book in Zeman's Gilgamesh trilogy. As with the first, the story is rather freely adapted, and the art work is enjoyable and mixes Sumerian, Assyrian and even Babylonian influences. Gilgamesh and Enkidu play the Royal Game of Ur on an enormous board and later, after the battle with the Bull of Heaven we can spot the Ishtar Gate. There are numerous fine ziggurats in many of the backgrounds and the Standard of Ur is again incorporated into the borders of some illustrations. The artwork now spans almost 2 millennia which is a mighty long time, but what's being illustrated is a myth, not history. Did the Babylonians who built the Ishtar Gate still enjoy the Gilgamesh myth? I do not know.… (mere)

The first book in a Gilgamesh trilogy. A particularly charming illustration shows the two heroes fixing to fight and yelling cuneiform threats or insults at each other. After the celebrations, the heroes kick back with an enormous pipe. What are they smoking? Generally the illustrations seem to mix up Assyrian and Sumerian art, we see the standard of Ur, and what looks like a Sumerian battle wagon, but also some Assyrian bulls and armor. The effect is pleasant. The story seems rather freely adapted, almost too much so.… (mere)
