The Golden Bull: A Mesopotamian Adventure

By Marjorie Cowley
Level 5
Review:

The official description reads: “The story takes place in Mesopotamia 5,000 years ago. The drought has lasted for months and the farmlands on the outskirts of the city of Ur have been devastated. The parents of Jomar and Zefa have no choice but to send their children away from their failing farm to seek employment in Ur. At 14, Jomar is old enough to apprentice with Sidah, a master goldsmith who works for the temple of the moongod.” This book contains no objectionable material and is packed with historical details about the life and history of Mesopotamia.
