Arabian Nights (Hardcover)
about this item
An abridged version of the tale of Scheherazade, daughter of King Shahryar's advisor, who tells her husband, the king, a different story every night to keep him from fulfilling his plan to kill her in the morning.
Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor: these are just some of the strange and amazing stories that clever Scheherazade tells to captivate her husband, King Shahryar…and to save her own life. Each one is more fantastic than the last, filled with demons and dervishes, caliphs and genies, men transformed into dogs and monsters with eyes that glow. Like the king, children will find themselves enchanted by every tale.
