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!

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...
