ALI BABA AND
MARCH 4TH HOUR 2/16/10
have you ever heard of the word folktale was
or how about Arabian or even easier just
Arabian folktale? Well so then you have
probably heard of this two Arabian folktales. If
you have not ever heard of the term Arabian
folktale that's OK because i bet u have
watched one just not known it was an Arabian
folktale. The two I'm going to be discussing are
Ali Ba Ba and the forty thieves and Aladdin.
There are many similarities and differences
between the two of them.
Two similarities are that in both Ali Abba
and Aladdin there are evil criminal people and
there is treasure in both. Funny thing is that in
Ali baba the forty thieves stole all of the
treasure and in Aladdin it was just there and
the thing is that they were both in secret
caves. One a moving rock that opens and
closes when u say open sesame and it would
move and in Aladdin it was in a sand tiger
A few more is Aladdin is un-greedy just
like Ali baba. One of my favorite things ever is
marriage its truly beautiful and in both these
stories there is a marriage between Aladdin
and the princess or with Ali Baba's son and
That's not all the things in common did
you know that they both toke place in Asia to
be more specific it would be India.
so there are so similarities but here are some
differences is in Aladdin there is a
princess,tiger,monkey,and a talking bird. but in
Ali Baba there isn't a
princess,tiger,monkey,and a talking bird.
As we all know magic is not real
.But since were speaking of magical
stuff in Aladdin there was a Gennie and a
lamp. but there would not be a rubbing lamp
Gennie in Ali baba.
In Aladdin there is a lot of singing and
dancing and stuff like that. But in Ali baba
there isn't any singing or dancing.
In Ali baba there is a good thing there
wasn't any people living on the street. But in
Aladdin there was a person in the street it was
actually Aladdin but he was some what in a
home but not really.
One really large difference is that we
read Ali baba and we watch as a Disney
channel original movie.
so all those people how didn't know
about Ali baba or Aladdin some what do now.
To me these stories really grasped my
attention. I think I'm going to get some more
of these Arabian folktales and keep reading
them or keep watching them. Also if you liked
these stories keep reading cause there very
