Sinbad's adventures are the most fantastic of the stories in The Thousand and One Nights. During his twenty years as a merchant adventurer, Sinbad 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, much more... For this vibrant retelling, James Riordan has drawn particularly on Sir Richard Burton's remarkable translation. Shelley Fowles tackles the illustrations with gusto and her comic touch gives these classic stories a highly contemporary feel.
