Review by purplestoregirl
I read Andrew Lang's version of the Arabian Nights when I was a little girl. It wasn't until I was an adult and buying a copy for a young girl cousin of mine that I discovered some versions do not include the Scheherazade narration - which is the most powerful feminine voice that existed in my childhood. Be sure you buy a version that begins with the tale of Scheherazade or you being robbed of one of the greatest Arabian gems - intelligent women.
