"Tales from the Arabian Nights"

 

Sheherezade stopped. 'Well?' said the sultan. 'What happened next? What was behind the door?' 'Sir, there's light in the sky,' said Sheherezade. 'You're going to kill me now! 'But you can't stop there. You have to finish the story.' Sheherezade is beautiful and clever. She also knows many wonderful stories. Night after night, she tells them to Sultan Shahriar. She always stops in an exciting place, so he wants to hear the end of the story. She knows stories for a thousand and one nights. The Arabic name for these stories (Alf Leila wa Leila) means The Thousand and One Nights. The stories in this book are very different. Some are sad and some are funny. Some are exciting. We meet many interesting people - an unhappy young man, a clever servant girl, a boy judge, a stupid barber and forty bad thieves. The stories aren't new, but you can find the same people in the world today - a young man in love, a good friend or a clever young boy.
