The teacher, Patrick Healy, traveled around the world, talked with people in different places, and collected around half a thousand myths, legends and folktales and their several alternative versions. His opinion and comments (directly or indirectly) are inevitable.
This is the first volume of his work. Patrick grouped together 33 famous Arabian children's stories and myths with his words. He retold the stories with his own opinion and approach to them. Patrick is an Australian writer who has an abiding interest in the folklore of different cultures. He has lived and worked in Hong Kong for over 25 years as a high school teacher. Patrick has traveled extensively throughout Asia and speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin fluently.

Many intriguing tales
First off, I thought I would like this collection to be able to recount to my future grandchildren but many were involving death and theft and other lessons I might not like to share with them. I wish there were more that were parables but I do also understand that this is a preservation of historical oral stories, so the author was keeping that in mind when he put them to paper. I did enjoy listening to these short tales and appreciate the opportunity given to review them.
