The Arabian Nights Summary

The Arabian Nights: Sixteen stories from Sheherazade by Neil Philip

Every night, King Shahryar married a new bride. Every morning, he chopped off her head. So when the lovely Sheherazade became the latest of his wives, she had to do some quick thinking to stay alive. Over a thousand and one nights, she kept the King enthralled with her storytelling, and the stories, gathered together as The Arabian Nights, have become one of the world's classics. You will find famous stories such as Aladdin, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and also others such as How Many Fools? and The Keys of Destiny, which will quickly become firm favourites. Full of magic and mystery, a selection of the original Arabian Nights stories are here retold for children in a lively and robust way. Read how through fanciful histories, romances, tragedies, comedies, riddles and songs, the enterprising maiden Sheherazade prolongs her life by holding the king's rapt attention. With vibrant illustrations by Sheila Moxley, The Arabian Nights offers a ride on a magic carpet into a world of adventure and excitement. Ideal to read aloud or for older readers to enjoy discovering by themselves.
