Description

The seven voyages of Sinbad are some of the most popular stories in A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. During his 20 years as a merchant adventurer, Sindad encounters a Rookh’s egg, a valley of diamonds, streams of amber, a terrifying sea-monster, an ogre’s feast, the Cave of the Dead, the Old Man of the Sea, and much more. For this vibrant retelling, James Riordan draws from Sir Richard Burton's remarkable translation. Artist Shelley Fowles illustrates with beauty and gusto, and her comedic touch gives these classic stories a contemporary feel.
