These stories, written in a simple and lucid style, apart from entertaining the readers-young and old alike-also inculcate in them a sense of moral and social values.

Arabian Nights or the Thousand Nights was originally authored in Persian language under the caption Alif Laila. It is one of the world's famous classics and especially in the category of children's literature. It is mostly a collection of stories from ancient Indian, Persian and Arabic folklore.

These are highly imaginative stories, full of magical fantasies and happenings. As the folklore goes once a Sultan known as Shaharyaar, married a beautiful girl named Shaharzaad for one night only. The next day he intended to kill her in the same manner as he had done away with some of her earlier one-night queens. The clever Shaharzaad saved her life by continuously telling stories to Sultan, one after another. This story narration continued for 1001 nights.

Some of the stories the young readers keep on enjoying as ever are the story of Sindbad the Sailor; the story of Alladin and the Magic Lamp; the story of Alibaba and the Forty thieves; the story of Ninth Statue; the story of Pyari Bano; the story of Hassan: the Rope Weaver, the story of Blind Beggar, the story of Good-for-Nothing and Nawab etc.
