Tales from 1,001 Nights: Aladdin, Ali Baba and other favorites.
Every night for three years the vengeful King Shahriyar sleeps with a different virgin, executing her next morning. To end this brutal pattern and to save her own life, the vizier's daughter, Shahrazad, begins to tell the king tales of adventure, love, riches and wonder - tales of mystical lands peopled with princes and hunchbacks, the Angel of Death and magical spirits, tales of the voyages of Sindbad, of Ali Baba's outwitting a band of forty thieves and of jinnis trapped in rings and in lamps. The sequence of stories will last 1,001 nights.
So pretty much my whole life I have loved Aladdin, like literally my whole life since the Disney movie came out same year as I was born so don't remember ever not knowing it. I mean I even dressed up as Aladdin- a costume I recently saw that my mom somehow still has! Anyways yeah love love love Aladdin so of course I really want to read this.
