Sindbad the Sailor has escaped death many times and is planning to live the rest of his life on dry land. But the sea beckons, and he sets out for one final adventure. As he sails from a beautiful far-off land where people drink scented tea, a storm destroys the ship. Sindbad finds refuge on an island, but it holds little safety for him. Ivory traders make him their slave. It seems that he will live out his days in servitude. But the power of love, and his compassion for a baby elephant, give him the strength he needs for survival. His voyage offers him the answer to life’s greatest secret, and finally he can rest.

Ludmila Zeman has retold these beloved adventures from the Thousand and One Nights in her gorgeous trilogy, Sindbad, Sindbad in the Land of the Giants, and Sindbad’s Secret, incorporating design details and maps that place the stories into their historical context

From the Back Cover:

“Zeman’s richly colored illustrations, details, coherent, and carefully composed...create an enticing introduction to a collection of tales that inspired writers from Hans Christian Andersen to Robert Louis Stevenson.”
School Library Journal

“...sumptuously illustrated...its pages are as intricate and elaborate as ancient tapestries or flying carpets...”
The Globe and Mail

“Ludmila Zeman has created another beautiful volume... The award-winning illustrator has once again used luminous colour and rich texture to create highly detailed paintings... [T]he unusual cinematic vantage points and the stunning details...challenge the viewer to take a closer look at their work. It is apparent that The Thousand and One Nights is one of Zeman’s favorite books as she has so beautifully created the fabulous world of Sindbad and his very lively and vivacious elephant friends. Very highly recommended.”
CM Magazine

“The plot is packed, and the pace is quick... The pencil and watercolor illustrations and text boxes are framed in ornately detailed borders, and each composition...features magical scenery... Zeman’s combination of breathless storytelling and color-drenched images successfully establishes this picture book as a wonder tale...”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
