Now, once upon a time there was a lion and his name was Share the Lion. And he was king of all the animals in the jungle. He had a lovely golden mane on his head, all furry — just like hair, only furry and golden. And he had a lovely golden coat. He used to go about and say “Grrrrrrrrrrrrr” because that’s how lions talk.

ONCE UPON A TIME, when the moon grew on a tree and ants were fond of pickles, there was a lovely brown fox.

This is a tale of two princes and their destinies. Prince Hoshyar gains rank and fortune by supervising the construction of huge metallic fishes that perform wondrous tasks and bring riches to the people of his land. His brother, Prince Tambal, is interested only in a wooden horse that he obtains from a humble carpenter. But the horse is a magical one. It carries the rider, if he is sincere, to his heart’s desire. One day Prince Tambal disappears on the magic horse. He is away a long time and has many exciting adventures before he obtains his heart’s desire and can return home.

Once upon a time in a country far away, there was a town, and in the town there was a chicken, and he was a very silly chicken indeed. He went about saying “Tuck-tuck-tuck, tuck- tuck-tuck, tuck-tuck-tuck.” And nobody knew what he meant. Of course, he didn’t mean anything at all, but nobody knew that. They thought that “Tuck-tuck-tuck, tuck-tuck-tuck, tuck-tuck- tuck” must mean something.

One day, an eagle was flying high in the sky and decided to stop for a rest. He swooped down and landed — where do you think?

LONG, LONG AGO in a land as far from here as the sun, yet as near to you as your breath, if you had wandered to the outskirts of a certain town, you would have come across a small house set in a well-tended garden. It was the home of a poor young man called Alim and his wife, Aisha.

Once upon a time, long, long, long ago, in a country far from here, there lived a boy who had no name. It is very strange to have no name, and you might ask, “Why didn’t he have a name?”

Well, it was like this.

Once upon a time, when flies flew backwards and the sun was cool, there was a country called Hich-Hich, which means “nothing at all.” 
This country had a king, and it also had a queen.
