The many assassinations of Samir, the seller of dreams / Daniel Nayeri ; with paintings by Daniel Miyares.

Nayeri, Daniel, (author.). Miyares, Daniel, (illustrator.).

Summary:

"This is the tale of an exciting journey along the Silk Road with a young Monk and his newfound guardian, Samir, a larger than life character and the so-called 'Seller of Dreams.' The man is a scammer; his biggest skill being the ability to talk his way into getting what he wants. While that talking did save Monkey's life, it has left a lot of people furious with Samir--furious enough to hire assassins. Monkey decides to try and save Samir from the attempts on his life--as a way to pay off his debt! If he can save Samir six times, he'll be a free man ... but will they all survive that long?"-- Provided by publisher.
