A chronic daydreamer, Abdullah assumes his midnight journey to a beautiful princess' garden is yet another flight of fantasy. When he discovers that he has, in fact, travelled in his sleep on a magic carpet purchased from a mysterious stranger, he is consumed by his desire to return to the young woman with whom he has fallen in love. His wish is not easily fulfilled, and he finds himself sidetracked by djinns, genies, witches, a slightly dishonest traveling companion, and two demanding cats. Common folkloric elements are presented with a new twist in this humorous fantasy sequel to HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE (Greenwillow, 1986). (Ages 10-13).
