# 654 in the Bilingual Legends series: This book is in both English and Assyrian Neo-Aramaic.

The ancient Babylonian King Hammurabi is only remembered for one reason today. But how much do we really know about this once mighty man?

Being particularly engaging for boys, this book relates the military might of Hammurabi before portraying a fictional scenario which may have prompted him to develop his famous Code - the first law in the world to introduce the presumption of innocence.

As the Akkadian language is dead, this book is instead presented in another ancient and endangered language spoken within a similar geographic region.

About the Author

As an Australian poet, it's hard to find work in the Outback. But there are children all over the world struggling to learn how to read. Some of them have hardly any books in their native language. That's why I created the Bilingual Legends series - to give as many children as possible the opportunity to read a story in their own native language. Usually, the language each book in the series is published in will be one that's spoken in the land where that story originates. A typical book also includes the text in English, but in some cases another language is employed instead. I hope you enjoy reading my books!
