It seemed as if the princes and princess would never know of their noble birth as they lived their lives quietly in their beautiful home, far away from the bustle and intrigue of the court. But the fates intervened.

An Arabian Nights story of full of magic and mystique, jealousy, bravery and love. Urged by a travelling pilgrim, two brothers set out to find a talking bird, a singing tree and a never-ending fountain. When their sister learns that they have failed and are in danger, she sets out dressed as a man, conquers the mountain of black stone, rescues her brothers and obtains the bird, the tree, and the fountain.

Elaborately illustrated with intricate detail, the rich colours bring to life the lyrical language of this intriguing tale with a happy twist to its conclusion.
