    THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

The collection also features the frame story of Shahriyar and Shahrazade with a focus on women as heroines, and courageous leaders, rather than weak and victimized.

    THE SEVEN WISE PRINCESSES
    Shah Bahram is restless, haunted by the memory of a secret room that he stumbled across in his palace where the portraits of seven wise and beautiful princesses hung on its walls. So he builds seven pavilions, each a different colour, and invites the seven princesses to leave their homelands and come to live in them. The princesses' stories of adventure, magic and miracles entertain Bahram, as well as teaching him the ideals of true sovereignty, truth, patience, perseverance, forgiveness, humility, wisdom and love. With illustrations by Nilesh Mistry. Published by Barefoot Books in 2001.
