A magnificent book that takes the reader into the world of Arabian Nights. It contains stories of love and friendship furnished with moral lessons typical of fairy tales. The translators delicate sense of the German language and his finesse in writing make the book even more congenial. I enjoyed it immensely, and so will anyone who is into fairy tales.
