Translated by Denys Johnson-Davies

Opening: Following the dawn prayer, with clouds of darkness defying the vigorous thrust of light, the vizier Dandan was called to a meeting with the sultan Shahriyar.

Reworking of some of the 1001 tales and lovely to help fill in those gaps of real-life timetable. Waiting for the tatties to roast? read a story. Tumble drier working hard at reviving padded walking trews? read a story.
