The Tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves: A Story from the Arabian Nights by Anonymous

What a choice for a bedtime story. Neo chose to have me read this ancient tale, but we had no idea things would get so interesting. Ali Baba is a poor man, grateful for all he has. When he is in the forest one day, he notices a large group of thieves who have a hidden cache of riches. The secret place can only be opened with a special password. Ali Baba is able to gather some riches for himself and his family, but does not want to be overly greedy. Accidentally, Ali Baba passes the information along to his brother, whose greed end up getting him killed by these thieves. Still, they want more blood, vowing that they will kill Ali Baba for taking part of their riches and knowing how to locate the cache. Numerous attempts at killing him fail, with Ali Baba having a great deal of help from his maidservant. By the end, a great deal of blood has been spilled, perhaps more than all the riches were worth. Neo commented that this story, while perhaps a long-ago tale, is NOT for kids, especially when they are getting ready for sleep. I suppose this kid is onto something, as violence never solves anything. Still, the story was quite exciting and the pictures were captivating. Well done, even if the violence factor worried young Neo a tad!

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

Ali Baba happens to overhear a group of forty thieves visiting their treasure store in the forest where he is cutting wood. The treasure is in a cave, the mouth of which is sealed by magic. When the thieves are gone, Ali Baba enters the cave himself, and takes some of the treasure home. Ali Baba borrows his sister-in-law's scales to weigh this new wealth of gold coins. Unbeknownst to Ali, his brother's wife has put a blob of wax in the scales to find out what Ali is using them for.

Antoine Galland , who heard the story from Syrian storyteller Hanna Diyab , added it to the Nights in the 18th century. It is one of the most familiar of the "Arabian Nights" tales, and has been widely retold and performed in many media, especially for children, where the more violent aspects of the story are often suppressed. The thieves learn this and try to kill Ali Baba, but Ali Baba's faithful slave-girl foils their plots. Ali Baba gives his son to her in marriage and keeps the secret of the treasure. Galland was an 18th-century French Orientalist who heard it in oral form from a Maronite story-teller, called Hanna Diyab , who came from Aleppo in modern-day Syria and told the story in Paris.
