Aladdin is a shiftless good-for-nothing boy until he unwittingly acquires a magic lamp inhabited by a genie - and the adventure that follows both makes his fortune and makes him a man.
Pullman tells the tale with his trademark crisp writing and fast-paced action.

"Enjoyable and great short story!"
Thought I would give this audiobook a try as I wanted something short and easy to listen to at bed time, and I'm glad I did.
Its a great story and I like the way Philip Pullman did it, I also like the fact that as your listening you don't feel like the story is rushing to the end so even though this audiobook is short when your listening it doesn't feel that way like some others do.
Great book, suitable for both adults and kids and a great short story!
"New twist on old story"
Short fairy tale which engages your interest from start to finish. Its under an hour long and that felt just right. Pullman makes the story colourful enough to hold your interest even though we've heard the tale of Aladdin before.
