  1. 1. ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES By Emigdi Subirats
  2. 2. Once upon a time two brothers lived in a town in Persia, one named Cassim, and the other Ali Baba. Cassim married a rich wife, but Ali Baba was poor. He cut wood and carried it with three donkeys. One day he saw forty men with horses. Robbers!!! He climbed a tree to hide. There was a rock. One said: "Open, Sesame," and a door opened in the rock. The robbers passed and the door closed. Ali Baba stayed in the tree, and after some minutes the door opened again, and the robbers came out. Then the captain of the robbers closed the door by saying, "Shut, Sesame," cassim
  3. 3. <ul><li>When the robbers disappeared, Ali Baba came down and went to the rock and said, &quot;Open, Sesame.&quot; The door opened, and Ali Baba was in a large cave with a treasure and bags of money. He put the bags on the three donkeys and closed the door by saying, &quot;Shut, Sesame,&quot; and went home. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>When he arrived home, he digged a hole and wanted to measure how rich they were. His wife ran to Cassim's house to borrow a measure. Cassim’s wife was suspicious and put glue on the bottom. Cassim's wife saw the gold and told her husband about it. And Cassim wanted the treasure, too. He asked Ali Baba about the gold and Ali Baba loved his brother, was a good man and told him the story. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Cassim went to the rock with mules the next morning. He opened the door by saying, &quot;Open, Sesame,&quot; and when he went in, it closed after him. The robbers found him there and killed him. Cassim’s servant, Morgiana, discovered the dead body in the rock. After the funeral, Ali Baba married his brother’s wife and went to live in her house. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The robbers went to the cave and didn’t find Cassim’s body. A robber visited the town and spoke with Morgiana. All the robbers went to the street where Ali Baba lived. They wanted their money and gold. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>A robber walked with some mules in the streets and he went to Ali Baba’s house. He said he was an oil trader. Ali Baba was hospitable and gave him some food and a room. The robber left the oil jars in the garden and robbers were in the jar. Morgiana needed some oil and went to the jars in the garden. A robber said: &quot;Is it time?&quot; He guessed they were robbers. She saw danger for Ali Baba and set fire to the oil jars and killed all the robbers. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Morgiana was a good dancer, and often danced for Ali Baba’s guests; so, after the meal, she started dancing with a dagger and killed the captain of the robbers. Ali Baba cried out with horror; but when Morgiana told him who his guest was, thanked her. They soon buried the captain's body in the garden with his comrades, and as the robbers were now all dead, they were free from danger. </li></ul><ul><li>Ali Baba's son married Morgiana, and they lived long in peace and happiness . </li></ul>PC: if a person/organization holds the copyright on pictures, please, contact me: emigdi @ hotmail . com
