Book review

A book filled with enchanted tales from the far east. This is one I love to read. Even as an adult I see myself not putting the book down and diving into the sandy deserts of Arabia. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to loose themselves in another land, with culture so strong the words that come off the pages makes you feel like you have went back in time.

The story orientates around a kings anger at his former queen; who he had beheaded for not keeping her marital vows. The king marry's a new girl everyday and has her beheaded in the morning. Until mothers and fathers had left his kingdom in fear of his ongoing madness. A advisor to the king had a daughter who he loved and believed had no choice but to give away. His daughter accepted the kings hand, however had a plan to stop the kings wrath and began telling him stories, which would be in triad of another night of her life.

The children would love it. I would say anyone over the age of 7. The layout of the book is brilliant. How one story intertwines with another is ingenious.
