The first tale was totally new to me. I tried it on my grandchildren (simultaneous translation into italian). And they now refuse to let me read them any other! what more could a grandad wish for?
But to go back to the start, I believe this to be an American anthology, it was published in 1905. And, as in any collection of 25 tales, there's a wide degree of variation between the offerings.
Many of the tales are classics, some wandering from the Classic version that was in favour when I was young, and not a few being totally new to me. Some of them I was glad to read and to compare with what I recall hearing sixty years ago. In particular Ali Baba and the lamp, and the forty thieves.
Not an earth shaker, but nice to have around. Worth having if you have grandchildren - and if they allow you to introduce something new!
