The city is under siege! The King, enraged by his wife’s dishonesty, has vowed to marry every young woman in the city only to have each bride beheaded the following day at sunrise. But Scheherazade, the beautiful and wise daughter of the King’s vizier, foils the King’s plans by telling stories so captivating and imaginative that the King delays her death every day to hear how each enchanted tale ends. From “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp” and “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” to “Sinbad the Sailor,” the most famous stories from the great classic A Thousand and One Nights comprise this collection of beautifully told tales—brought powerfully to life by the vivid illustrations of Gustaf Tenggren.
