Description: A whimsical re-imagining of "Scheherazade" or "The 1001 Arabian Nights," Sarazad is a shy 9-year-old girl who loves to escape into a world of books, story-telling, and imaginary friends. When the kids at school bully her for being different, Sarazad retreats into Storyland, where she meets the grumpy Monster King. But things change when Sarazad weaves her tales for him, and soon he discovers the power of friendship. Sarazad leaves Storyland realizing that her stories can make a difference, and she returns to school to use them to prevail.
