ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES
Ali Baba was such a poor man that he had
only had one shoe for his two feet. Even
the mice in his house were hungry. One
day, his wife said, "We have no food in the
house. No rice. No potatoes. Go and
collect leaves in the forest so that I can
make a soup." Ali was a lazy man. He
looked for leaves for about ten minutes
and then he climbed a tree to sleep. He
was afraid of wolves. When he woke up,
he was surprised to see forty thieves on
forty horses. They stopped in front of a big
rock.

"Open Sesame!" shouted the leader.


A door on the rock opened. The thieves
carried sacks full of gold into the cave.
When they had finished, the leader
shouted.
"Close Sesame!" and the door closed. As
soon as the thieves had disappeared Ali
Baba jumped down from the tree, said,
"Open Sesame" and went into the cave.
There were shelves all around the
walls. The shelves were full of sacks. And
the sacks were full of gold. Ali took a sack
home with him.
Unfortunately, one of the thieves saw Ali's
footprints on the sand. He followed them
to Ali's home. He took out his knife and
made a cross on the door.
"Now I shall know which house it is," he
said.
He rode off to get the other thieves. But
Ali had seen the thief. He and his wife took
brooms and swept away the footprints.
Then he made crosses on every door at
the street. When the forty thieves arrived
they had their knives between their teeth.
But they couldn't find either Ali or the
gold. And Ali and his wife lived happily
ever after.
