Publisher's Description

"This is not a book to be read in a week. It is an ocean of stories to be dipped into over a lifetime. And this new Penguin edition is the one to have." -The Sunday Times (London)

Every night for three years, the vengeful King Shahriyar sleeps with a different virgin and executes her the next morning. To save her own life, the vizier's daughter, Shahrazad, begins to tell the king tales of adventure, love, riches, and wonder-of mystical lands peopled with princes and hunchbacks, the Angel of Death and magical spirits, tales of the voyages of Sindbad, of Ali Baba's outwitting a band of forty thieves and of genies trapped in lamps. A sequence of stories to last 1,001 nights. With a new cover designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, Tales from 1,001 Nights is a magnificent collection of some of the world's best-loved tales.
