A Trophy Chapter Book.
Stories fit for a sultan . . .
Travel to ancient Cathay and meet young 'Aladdin' as he engages in a battle of wits with an evil sorcerer. Enter an underground cave and come face-to-face with the 'Queen Of The Serpents'.

In this lively and accessible retelling, Deborah Nourse Lattimore brings to wondrous life all the adventure and magic of three of those special tales - tales so amazing, they can't be true. Or can they?
