KIRKUS REVIEW

Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba troop through the opulent pages of this splendid collection. Scheherezade is here too -- with cavorting caliphs, grotesque genii, acimitar-ed scalawags, viziers and serpents. Gustaf Tenggren has outdone himself. With his unique alchemy he bends each element of the Oriental pageantry at his disposal here- human forms, ships, minarets, donkeys and elephants, trees and turrets, -- laves his paint brush in the dye-pots of Persian rug-makers and creates a magic carpet. To the eleven sly tales of wonder he adds humor, vigor and surprise.
