Aladdin and the Lamp by Jan Lewis

This timeless tale is retold in rhyme in this chunky padded boardbook. You can follow the adventures of Aladdin as he battles against a wicked wizard and finds a magic lamp - when he rubs it, a helpful genie appears! Bright pictures and simple rhyming text make this an ideal story for reading aloud to little ones, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. And look out for Aladdin's black cat - count how many times she appears throughout the book. Aladdin, a poor and ragged boy, Was his mother's pride and joy. They had little food and no money at all. Then a long-lost uncle came to call. He showed Al a cave, with a lamp on the floor. Please fetch it for me - I can't fit through the door. Then he threatened to slit the lad's gizzard. This was no uncle, but an evil wizard! How could Aladdin defeat this meany? Why, with the help of a wish-granting genie...
