This modern edition of Aladdin’s Picture Book presents the classic Middle Eastern story of Aladdin, beautifully illustrated by Walter Crane. The famous tale is part of the widely-known collection One Thousand and One Nights, added in the 18th century by Frenchman Antoine Galland. It tells the story of an impoverished young man called Aladdin who, with the help of a magic lamp that he finds, becomes rich and powerful beyond his wildest dreams. This exciting and charming tale, Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp, is perfect bedtime reading material for children.

Walter Crane (1845 – 1915) was an English book illustrator and artist considered as being among the most prolific and influential children’s book producers of his generation. Crane also played a significant role in the Arts and Crafts movement, producing many illustrations, paintings, children’s books. Some notable books illustrated by Crane include Edmund Spenser’s “Faerie Queene” (1894–1896), “Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales” (1910), and “A Fairy Garland” (1929).
