Annette P, September 27, 2010 (view all comments by Annette P)
Arabian Nights is a classic - the stories have a timeless, romantic quality. The illustrations in this edition are a wonderful embellishment, especially the color illustrations featured on individual pages between the text pages. As for the recommended reading level for children ages 9-12, I would doubt that most children in this group would efficiently comprehend this text. In my opinion it is for someone with a higher reading level. Even on a listening level, it may too difficult to understand completely for many or most in this age range. The vocabulary is very challenging. I discovered this edition in the re-sale area of my local recycling center and took it home because I like stories and I was attracted to the artwork. The style of the book is old-fashioned, and I guess I liked that too.
