The Lovereading4Kids comment

The seven amazing voyages of Sinbad of adventure and danger, shipwreck and heroism, fabulous treasures and terrifying monsters have been brilliantly retold by the talented storyteller John Yeoman coupled with some sensational and wonderfully lively illustrations by one of the foremost illustrators this country has ever seen – Quentin Blake. This is truly an edition to treasure.

Synopsis

Quentin Blake's the Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor by John Yeoman, John Yeoman

Originally part of The Arabian Nights stories, the tales of Sinbad the Sailor are among the first, and greatest, adventure stories ever told.

Reviews

John Yeoman's calm, intelligent prose retains a hint of the ornate Middle Eastern storytelling tradition--all very readably--while illustrator Quentin Blake's brilliantly brisk, tangled lines give a feeling of lightheartedness even to scenes of terror and danger. -- The Wall Street Journal
