Reading Diary B: Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights

The second part of Scheherazade's story is her telling the story of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp. I think this is an interesting story because it is very different from the Disney version. I like how Scheherazade makes it more interesting and foreign to her and everyone listening in the story by making Aladdin Chinese and a hero from the "far east". I think this really is a testimony to her great storytelling skills and her ability to keep people in awe and interested. I would like to hear more stories from her. These tales make her seem to be a very skilled and clever woman.

The following shows a picture of Aladdin in Chinese clothes:
