One Thousand & One Nights

Item #: 1293


1,001 Nights is a brief sampling from the much longer story collection. With rich language and enchanting illustrations, the book offers the tale of how the stories came to be, recounting the way Sheherazade outwits her death sentence and three of the stories she uses to bring about her release. Children will be enthralled by Ali Baba, the ox and the ass and the ebony horse; they will also be delighted by the cleverness of Sheherazade. These retellings and illustrations capture a feeling of ancient times and "otherness" instead of slipping into the mystic feeling of fairy tale making a perfect storybook for a child heading into middle childhood.
