Like a Chinese one thousand and one nights

I am a twelve year old boy who loves culture and this book fascinated me. The fact that stories never die is very present as well as the love of culture building stories. I would recommend this book to children fascinated by culture as well as parents who want to show their children this concept of a story and it's importance.

PS: this novel was so intriguing that I took time off playing video games just to write this review.
