Abstract

This chapbook presents the traditional tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves presented for popular entertainment. 

In the story, Ali Baba is a poor woodcutter who discovers the secret of a thieves' den, entered with the phrase "Open Sesame". The thieves learn this, and try to kill Ali Baba. But Ali Baba's faithful slave-girl foils their plots; Ali Baba gives his son to her in marriage and keeps the secret of the treasure.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Baba)
