Currently Reading: Tales from the Arabian Nights

“Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves not present, sir!”

This is an edited version of the original stories. I think the main difference is that it’s edited for younger children (and possibly for public reading). The original version, which I read many, many years ago was very explicit, even though it was in the children’s section. I’m looking forward to re-reading the stories, particularly Aladdin, which is an old favourite.
