Master storyteller Stephen Mitchell brings three of the best loved stories from "The Arabian Nights "to independent young readers ready for adventure. All richly illustrated with lustrous line drawings throughout, they are here for young readers to rediscover: "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," "Abu Keer and Abu Seer," and "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp" in its original setting of China. These stories will bring you to a whole new world; one where clever wit will save the day, thieves give chase with swords and spears, kings can kill with a glance, honesty is rewarded with a vast, unheard-of treasure.
