“What’s the use of stories that aren’t even true?” This is the question Haroun asks her father, the famous storyteller Rashid Khalifa, when her mother Soraya runs away with another man. Rashid then loses his unique talent, the ability to tell stories, and Haroun decides she must help her father recover his powers. She sets off on a remarkable journey to the fabled Sea of Stories, where many of Rashid’s outlandish yarns turn out to be not only true but alive.
