13 illustrated, black & white paperbacks featuring the best tales from The Arabian Nights. Retold by Kelley Townley. Illustrated by Anja Gram. Ages 7+ years.
This is an exciting new young reader series of tales from The Arabian Nights. Fun, gripping, beautifully told and illustrated, they are perfect for introducing young readers to the rich stories from this classic collection.
The collection includes traditional favourites such as Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp, The Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves as well as less well-known gems such as The Tale of Zubaidah and the Three Qalandars, Gulnare of the Sea … and more.
These contemporary retellings will captivate readers of any age. The series style is fresh and the print inside is beautifully typeset, making them an ideal collection of chapter books for children who have outgrown their reading scheme books and are ready for new adventures.
Within the series are a balance of shorter stories and longer epics. The longer stories are often comprised of ‘stories within stories’, enabling children to experience devices of narrative structure within story-telling.
Arabian Nights Adventures books are perfect for collecting. When arranged on bookshelves the distinctive spines of these numbered editions reveal the characteristic Arabian Nights cityscape which grows as new stories are added – a design made specially for 1,001 nights’ tales!
