Scheherazade

What an incredible gift of storytelling!

Terrible translation

This is a terrible "translation". It's more like the person read 1001 nights once then wrote a similar story, but made it a children's book. Highly un-recommended unless you want a bad abridged version.

Good pleasant read

Other translations seem to have a lot of formality and jargon. This one gets right down to storytelling for all ages. I disagree with some of the negative reviews. Yes its a classic work, but its a work of stories deigned to keep people interested. So here it is presented in a fun read! What more can you want!
