Bahman, Perviz and Parizade are three siblings who spend much of their happy childhood climbing trees, building forts and shooting bows and arrows. One day a travelling dervish visits their humble cottage in the woods and talks about a mysterious bird kept prisoner by an evil sorcerer. The children set off to rescue the bird, but they must first get past the menacing danger that lurks along the steep rocky path to the bird’s hideaway. Only then does the truth about a certain mystery finally emerge … one that has haunted the sultan and his wife for nearly two decades.

The Talking Bird, the Singing Tree & the Golden Water is an Arabian Nights classic that has been beautifully retold by Kelley Townley and illustrated by Anja Gram as part of the new Arabian Nights Adventures series.
