From School Library Journal:
Grade 5 Up. Written over five centuries ago, these tales have survived over time as storytellers' favorites. Yeoman's first-person narration pretty much follows the standard Richard Burton translation and leads readers through Sinbad's seven shipwrecks while introducing them to the amazing inhabitants of the islands on which the sailor is inevitably stranded: sea-stallions; the giant Roc and diamond-protecting serpents; Cyclops-like giants; cannibals (and live-burial customs); the Old Man of the Sea with his lethal legs; the generous king of Sarandib; and monsters and the flying "brethren of the demons." In each formulaic tale, Sinbad loses everything, flirts with death, and ends up richer, more generous, and maybe even a bit wiser than before. All of the stories provide numerous opportunities for retelling?and embellishing?and thus gloriously display the storyteller's craft. This version makes excellent classroom reading and Blake's expressive line drawings and watercolors, about half of which are reproduced in black and white, lend a subtle wit, pathos, and determination to the remarkable revelations of this man of mysterious wealth. An excellent introduction to the "1001" tales that are filled with adventure, luck, ingenuity, and allegory.?John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX

Buchbeschreibung Margaret K. McElderry, U.S., 1997. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Near Fine. Quentin Blake (illustrator). First U.S. edition. Quentin Blake gets top billing here, over and above writer John Yeoman who has retold these Arabian Nights tales from existing translations. It's the artist whose name is writ large on jacket and title page, and who gets to contribute the Foreword. His black & white or color drawings - some full page - decorate practically every spread. I've read some disparaging comments about Mr Blake recently from folks who seem to be over-exposed to him and weary of his style. I don't get that. The guy is a masterful artist and his deceptively scrappy and simple drawings hide mountains of action and feeling. Like the Australian artist, Ron Brooks, Blake can create a face using no more than three dots and a hooked line and yet imbue those marks with such expressions that they leave no doubt as to his intent. Anyway, this is a great book in which to view and admire his talent. A fine copy in a near fine, slightly rubbed dust jacket with a very soft crease on front panel. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 000735
