One poor sad lonely book read for the whole month of December. You'd think I was busy or something.
Anyhow Book of Wonders by Jasmine Richards was a neat variation on Arabian Nights. Scheherazade/Zardi is the main character. Instead of telling stories to the Sultan, she goes on a quest of sorts to save her sister. In doing so, she runs into characters from the traditional telling of Arabian Nights. A fun twist on a classic tale. The end of the story is set up for a sequel. The book is geared toward tweens and early middle schoolers.
