Zahara’s Rose

What will happen when Zahara reaches the Hanging Garden of Babylon and tries to see the Queen? With a cart full of plants and the straggly weed her father calls the Flower of Heaven, she and her mother and grandmother pass through the Ishtar Gates on the way to the marvellous hanging gardens, built by Nebuchadnezzar for his Queen Amyritis. But a guard refuses entry for Zahara and laughs at the Flower of Heaven…Libby Hathorn has told a gentle celebratory tale, illuminated by the evocative illustrations of Doris Unger.
