All the stories in this book have been collected from various Jewish writings. No attempt has been made to give a literal translation. The tales have been retold in a modern setting. Some of these quaint old tales and stories brought comfort to the children of Israel in the days of long ago. Perhaps some pleasure may be derived by their in our days.
"'I do not like to make use of thy evil power'"
"'I come to give thee the greatest treasure on earth'"
The carpet was stationary and the genii served the breakfast
"Before sunrise next day the palace stood complete"
"'Proof, indeed! cried he. See!'"
"'Art thou a fairy?'"
"He skipped over the feet of Abner and escaped
"'Is not this the magic sword of Kenaz?'"
