Sinbad's adventures are the most fantastic of the stories in The Thousand and One Nights . During his twenty years as a merchant adventurer, Sinbad encounters a Rookh's egg, a valley of diamonds, streams of amber, a terrifying sea-monster, an ogre's feast, the Cave of the Dead, the Old Man of the Sea and much, much more... For this vibrant retelling, James Riordan has drawn particularly on Sir Richard Burton's remarkable translation. Shelley Fowles tackles the illustrations with gusto and her comic touch gives these classic stories a highly contemporary feel.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Riordan, reteller of classic tales such as Jason and the Golden Fleece and The Twelve Labours of Hercules, here abbreviates Scheherazade's Arabian Nights' tale of Sinbad, sailor, adventurer, and occasional scalawag. The book is divided into seven parts, one for each of Sinbad's seven voyages, and each voyage is further subdivided by two or three adventures. From a valley of diamonds to the cave of the dead to an escape from the old man of the sea, Sinbad sails through each potentially fatal adventure without permanent damage. Riordan's contemporary language is essentially unadorned, and, despite a syntactic hiccup or two, accessible. Fowles' pen-and-ink and acrylic illustrations, though not obviously based in any specific cultural tradition, have an airy, fantastical quality reminiscent of Giselle Potter's art. Images on every spread help move the stories forward, and the varying compositions keep the eye interested. Riordan includes a note explaining the tale's origins and a brief glossary of possibly unfamiliar terms.--Del Negro, Janice Copyright 2008 Booklist"
