A long time ago, a magician wanted a very special magic lamp. But the lamp was in a cave in China. The magician couldn’t go into the cave to get the lamp. Only a boy could get the magic lamp from the cave.
The magician went to China. There, in a market, he saw a poor boy. The boy had a basket of bread.
‘What’s your name, boy?’ asked the magician. ‘Aladdin, sir,’ said the boy. ‘Please, buy my bread.’

‘You must pull the brass ring to open the door.’
‘Then you can go in,’ said the magician
Aladdin pulled the ring. The stone door opened and he saw some steps in the dark cave.
‘Go down the steps to the magic garden,’ said the magician. ‘There’s a beautiful fruit tree in the garden. Under the tree there’s a brass lamp. You must bring the lamp to me.’

There were beautiful flowers and wonderful trees, but one tree was more beautiful than the others. It was the fruit tree! All the fruit were different colours and different shapes. Aladdin ate some of the fruit. It was delicious!…
