Arabian Nights : Tales from the Arabian Nights, Paperback

Arabian Nights : Tales from the Arabian Nights Paperback

Edited by Andrew Lang

Illustrated by H. J. Ford

Part of the Wordsworth Children's Classics series



The beautiful Scheherazade's royal husband threatens to kill her, so each night she diverts him by weaving wonderful tales of fantastic adventure, leaving each story unfinished so that he spares her life to hear the ending the next night.

This is the background to the Arabian Nights. In this selection made by that master of folklore and fairy-tale Andrew Lang, the reader meets Aladdin with his wonderful lamp, the Enchanted Horse, the Princess Badoura, Sinbad the Sailor, and the great Caliph of Bagdad, Haroun-al-Raschid.

The stories are beautifully illustrated by H.J. Ford.
