The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is the prequel to The Hunger Games trilogy. It takes place during the 10th annual Hunger Games, following a young Coriolanus Snow (not yet the President Snow we all love to hate). For the first time, the Games are having Capital students mentor the tributes, and Snow has been assigned the girl from District 12.
