The Lovereading4Kids comment

A welcome reissue of a classic title that is perfect for reading aloud to all those who enjoy magical adventure laced with knockabout humour. Aladdin, hero of the story of the magic lamp, has a son Abu Ali who is born with remarkable abilities. Not only is he delightfully well-mannered and well-behaved but he is also able to speak from birth! When Aladdin summons up the genie to find out why Abu Ali is so gifted he discovers that the boy has a great destiny ahead of him. He is charged with finding the enchanted Land of Green Ginger and releasing the enchanted wizard from the spell that has turned him into a button-nosed tortoise. Magic and mayhem follow as Abu Ali sets out to fulfil his destiny in a wonderfully old-fashioned Arabia.
