9789775325143: Folk Tales of Egypt (Tales from Egypt & the Arab World Series)

Egyptian folklore is a rich treasure of imagination and wisdom. The seven stories in this book have been adapted from tales that are told by word of mouth in various parts of Egypt. The longest is a fantastic tale about how the famous Clever Hassan triumphs over evil and wins the beautiful girl he loves. Another tale tells of a simple peasant whose bad luck turns into riches beyond his dreams. Then there is the story of the poor peasant who falls in love with a beautiful princess and is helped by a wooden gazelle. You can also read how a clever judge tricks two thieves. The atmosphere of these tales is as colorful and exciting as the world of the Arabian Nights.
