MEDIA REVIEWS
"A brilliant tapestry woven not of yarn but of stories, both fresh and faithful to its historical roots." -- Kirkus Starred Review

"The supplemental educational content, including a map of the ancient Arab world and notes on Napoli's approach to her skilled retellings, allows for a deeper understanding of these stories and their significance within a larger cultural context." -- Publishers Weekly

"As a collection, the book straddles the line between pleasure reading--enhanced by the vibrant and highly stylized artwork--and a scholarly source, complete with sidebars, maps of the ancient Arab world, and additional sources for those interested in further pursuit." -- Booklist

"A generation raised on Disney films will recognize some of the tales, and the sheer power of the storytelling will sweep them along through the rest... And really, it simply isn't possible to beat the sheer drama of the high-stakes premise of this important literary treasure... This is a must-have for collections and young readers everywhere." -- The Booklist Reader

"Highly recommended, especially for private browsing and public library collections." -- Midwest Book Review
