    • I've long been a sucker for the Arabian Nights, so I grabbed this from the library and read it this afternoon while waiting for my books to finish the return process.This book collapses the first and second voyages of Sindbad into one in which he dissipates his money, hires onto a ship, they land on the island that is actually the back of a whale, Sindbad is saved from drowning by clasping a barrel, and is washed ashore on the island where the rocs live. The abbreviation of the story works prett [...]


    • Ludmila Zeman is a brilliant artist and solid storyteller. This beginning book in her Sindbad trilogy tells of two events on Sindbad's seven voyages. But first Zeman sets the scene by very briefly telling us the story of Shahrazad and how she saved her life by telling stories such as these to a cruel king. This book tells tales of how Sindbad mistook a whale for an island, how he mistook a Roc's egg for a mountain and was carried by that Roc into a pit of jewels and deadly serpents. While the st [...]


    • The lush illustrations gives a nod to the beauty of the Oriental rugs of the region in which this tale takes place allowing the reader a peek into the rich culture and art. The author's note would make a wonderful jumping off point (including a map of the region) before reading the book. My students are sure to come away with a deeper knowledge of history of this traditional tale.Don't miss this one.


    • All I know about Sinbad was gleaned from watching black & white movies as a kid. From this book I learned that the Sinbad stories were among those told by Shahrazad to King Shahriyar. The first known reference to Shahrazad dates back to the ninth century and Sinbad's travels can be linked to actual voyages of the Arabs. The picture book didn't thrill me, but the author's note was fascinating and left me yearning for more information.


    • A beautiful retelling of some Sindbad stories. Zeman's pictures are exotic and mysterious, with borders and details which call to mind lavish Oriental carpets. I enjoyed reading it to my 10 and 11 year old, and we are eager to get the next two volumes. Gilgamesh is still my favorite Zeman book, but this one is wonderful too!


    • I read aloud this picture book with my 7- and 11-year old for our Middle Ages: Arabs history lesson. Sinbad is one of the tales Shahrazad tells King Shahryar during the "One Thousand and One Nights" she captivates him with her storytelling in order to delay her execution. This picture book offers a abridged version of the Sinbad story with lovely illustration.


    • Picture Book: I've read this story before but i thought she retold it very well. I also liked that she included part of the history of the Arabian nights. It was a fun introduction as well as prologue at the end.


    • This story was very dark. I'm not sure if I would read it to my class due to the violence, but at the same time it has very creative elements that may really engage children.


    • This is two stars mainly because the author insists the story takes place in China, but the characters and cultural milieu are middle eastern.


    • My eight year old stepson and five year old stepdaughter really liked the story. I really liked the illustrations.
