The Adventures of Prince Camar and Princess Badoura is a rarely-told gem from The Arabian Nights. In this new modern edition you’ll find a wonderful retelling by Kelley Townley with beautiful illustrations by Anja Gram. Here you can read the opening chapter.

A young prince defies his father and is banished to a draughty old abandoned tower. A beautiful princess turns away all her suitors and so is confined to her chambers inside a magnificent palace of jewels. Thanks to the antics of two magic genies, the royal pair meet one night as they sleep – and are magically transported back to their own beds before morning. But was it a real encounter or an enchanted dream?

Mischievous genies, secret identities, evil birds, hidden treasure and more: join Prince Camar and Princess Badoura on their epic adventures as they search for each other across the ancient lands of Arabia. With only the tiniest of clues to guide them, can they succeed?
