Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves

Title:  Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves
Author: Retold by Katie Daynes
Illustrator:  Paddy Mounter
Genre:  Traditional Tale
Reading Age: 8-9 Years

This is a really easy and exciting book to read, full of pictures to keep you interested.

It is the story of a poor woodcutter who tricks a band of thieves to get a whole cave full of treasure.  It is cram packed with 'magical words' like merchant, galloping, sesame, treasure and reveal.   

The story is all about adventure, taking risks, finding treasure and getting revenge.  It should only be read by the brave!
