Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195971310, Paperback)

A cruel king marries beautiful young women, but always has their heads cut off in the morning. However, his new wife, Sheherezade, is clever. Every night, she starts to tell him a wonderful story. She tells him about a greedy man who finds a robbers' cave, full of treasure, but cannot remember the magic words to get out again. She tells him the story of Sinbad the sailor, of a genie in a bottle, of Aladdin and his magic lamp, and many more. Every morning, the king lets his new wife live, because he wants to hear the end of the story. Now you can read some of Sheherezade's wonderful stories - and find out what happens to the storyteller herself!
