Smashwords book reviews by Ardyth DeBruyn

  • The Tales of Abu Nuwas - Setara's Genie on June 02, 2011

    An engaging frame tale type story with the main story following a girl with an overly literal genie. Young readers will love hearing about how each wish is carried out exactly to the letter, not the spirit of the request. It's a light-hearted version of 1001 Arabian Nights or Aladdin with fun references to other mythological figures. Also an excellent choice to also read aloud to younger children who might find reading on their own difficult, but could easily appreciate the stories if read to them.
