A Storyteller Book Aladdin by Lesley Young

This title retells the adventures of the young Aladdin, who, with the help of a genie from a magic lamp, outwits a wicked magician and wins the hand of a beautiful princess. It is a delightful new version of a traditional fairy tale, specially adapted by Lesley Young and carefully worded with lively text to appeal to all young readers. Every magical moment of this classic story is captured in bright, characterful illustrations by Govinder Nazran. It is perfect for reading aloud to small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. Aladdin is a young man from a poor family. When he is tricked by an evil magician who pretends to be his uncle, Aladdin ends up trapped in a cave full of treasure. Among the hoard is a golden lamp, and when the young man rubs the object, there is a flash, and a wisp of smoke that takes the form of a man. It is a genie, who has been waiting for a hundred years for someone to rub the lamp and release him. With the riches from the cave and the genie's magical powers, Aladdin and his mother are no longer poor. However, the evil wizard has other plans...
