Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
Sinbad's adventures were originally a part of the Arabian Nights stories and they sparkle with the mystery of exotic locales, riches of silver and gold, and escapades on a grand scale. These wonderfully retold tales will be read and reread for they are packed with enough action and adventure to compete with any of the movies, video games or comic books which vie for the attention of children today. Each voyage is filled with more breathtakingly excitement than the last. As the stories draw the reader in, Quentin Blake's line drawings enhance the tall tales of faraway lands, glittering fortunes, devilish disasters and soaring escapes. 1996, Margaret K. McElderry Books (first published
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up--Written over five centuries ago, these tales have survived over time as storytellers' favorites. Yeoman's first-person narration pretty much follows the standard Richard Burton translation and leads readers through Sinbad's seven shipwrecks while introducing them to the amazing inhabitants of the islands on which the sailor is inevitably stranded: sea-stallions; the giant Roc and diamond-protecting serpents; Cyclops-like giants; cannibals (and live-burial customs); the Old Man of the Sea with his lethal legs; the generous king of Sarandib; and monsters and the flying "brethren of the demons." In each formulaic tale, Sinbad loses everything, flirts with death, and ends up richer, more generous, and maybe even a bit wiser than before. All of the stories provide numerous opportunities for retelling--and embellishing--and thus gloriously display the storyteller's craft. This version makes excellent classroom reading and Blake's expressive line drawings and watercolors, about half of which are reproduced in black and white, lend a subtle wit, pathos, and determination to the remarkable revelations of this man of mysterious wealth. An excellent introduction to the "1001" tales that are filled with adventure, luck, ingenuity, and allegory.--John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX
Horn
The seemingly endless but fascinating voyages of the merchant Sinbad, so splendidly exotic, so extreme as to both peril and treasure, so essential to every child's literary education, have been treated to a first-class production. The retelling by Yeoman is smooth, literate, and very readable; the illustrations by that old master, Quentin Blake, are perfect in their way. His usual scrawly cartoonlike drawings are exactly adapted to wild storms at sea, horrifying and hungry serpents, and the grisly giants encountered by Sinbad and his friends. An admirable edition of a classic for children.
Kirkus Reviews
A splendiferous new presentation of an ageless yarn, replete with disasters, exotic lands, sumptuous palaces, fortunes lost and won back, and horrible monsters: "We saw . . . a giant-like creature . . . his lower lip hung down like a camel's over his chest, his ears flopped over his shoulders like an elephant's, and his fingernails were like a lion's claws. I nearly passed out at the sight of him." Once Yeoman (also with Blake, The Singing Tortoise, 1994, etc.), through Sinbad, begins to weave his storyteller's spell, readers will want to plunge through right to the end (although a ribbon is bound into the book, should there be a need to mark a stopping point). The text has been edited for ease and fluency; the grandeur of older renditions has been preserved while long speeches and flowery rhetoric have been cut down. In a plethora of full-color and black-and-white watercolor wash illustrations that range from elaborate full-page compositions to tiny, almost abstract scribbles, Blake places gesticulating figures into situations that seem more exciting than dangerous. A fine design with a generous use of white space gives this volume the look and feel of the classic it is.
