Synopsis

The Golden Carpet by Mairi Mackinnon

A prince convinces a peasant girl to marry him by learning to weave carpets. The couple rule as king and queen until a wicked magician kidnaps the king, forcing him to be his slave and weave carpets for the magician to sell. In order to escape, the king finds an ingenious way of getting a message to his wife. It is a traditional folktale from Armenia. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme, which includes over 250 titles across seven levels - all developed in conjunction with reading experts at Roehampton University.
