When Yeats and his
parents visit his grandmother's creepy old house, Yeats reunites a pair of
pirate bookends and uncovers the amazing truth: Years ago, Yeats's father
traveled into The Arabian Nights with a friend, and the friend, Shari, is
still stuck in the tales. Assisted by the not-always-trustworthy pirates,
Yeats must navigate the unfamiliar world of the story of Shaharazad--dodging
guards and tigers and the dangerous things that lurk in the margins of the
stories--in order to save Shari and bring peace to his family.
David Ward has created a fantasy rich with atmosphere and full of heart-stopping drama.
