Overview

The Three Princes are all desperate to win the love of Princess Halima, and a challenge is set by her father to find the most beautiful, magical gift they can find. But when disaster strikes, will they be magical enough? Full of rich, bold illustrations, this traditional Arabian tale is humorously retold by double-Carnegie-winner Berlie Doherty.* Topaz/Band 13 books offer longer and more demanding reads for children to investigate and evaluate.* A traditional folktale.* A summary on pages 30 and 31 of the magical objects that the princes find helps readers to recap the story.* Curriculum Links; Citizenship: living in a diverse world, Art and Design: Self Portrait* This book has been quizzed for Accelerated Reader.
