Synopsis

Synopsis

In this stunning sequel to Sindbad: From the Tales of The Thousand and One Nights, Sindbad, now a rich sultan, recounts more of his adventures. On this voyage, Sindbad and his hapless crewmates are driven off course, and their ship is overrun by monkeys. They abandon the ship but row into more trouble, landing on an island inhabited by a man-eating giant. They are captured but devise a daring escape, and think they are almost away, when they encounter even greater obstacles. With his ingenuity and quick wits, Sindbad prevails, but there are yet more seafaring adventures in store.

Sindbad earned top marks from critics and readers alike for its breath-taking art. In Sindbad in the Land of Giants, Ludmila Zeman has once again delivered an action-packed, suspenseful tale worthy of The Thousand and One Nights.

“Whispering mysteries, songs of the ages, the wonders of wandering —they’re all in Ludmila Zeman’s illustrated versions of Sindbad, Sindbad’s Secret and Sindbad in the Land of Giants… These sumptuously illustrated books, their pages glowing with crimson, turquoise, amber and gold, … present a fantastical world of monsters, frantic escapes and feats of daring —all of which our hero Sindbad endures with glorious success.“The classic The Tales of the Thousand and One Nights is a potent source for today’s epic fantasy.”
