If favor now should greet my story, Allah must receive the glory. The beloved Calif of Bagdad and his trusted vizier are tricked into buying a magic snuffbox from an evil sorcerer that changes them into storks. But with the help of an enchanted princess, the Calif defeats his power-hungry brother and returns in triumph to his great and glorious city. This lyrically retold, spellbinding tale of the Middle East comes brilliantly to life in lavish, intricate watercolor paintings that mirror the richly detailed tapestries of the Middle East.
