This is a completely original version of the "Arabian Nights Stories" by award-winning author Geraldine McCaughrean.

In order to delay her inevitable execution, Queen Shaharazad tells her murdering husband, King Shahryar, a wonderfully exciting story every night.

The King is used to a new wife every day, only to put her to death the following day, but finds himself so intrigued in the magical stories Shaharazad tells, he can't bring himself to kill her.

Night after night she tells her wonderful stories until the King starts to realize that he won't be able to live without them...
