This original story of Aladdin is a Middle-Eastern folk tale of a poor child named Aladdin. He is approached by a man who tells him he is the brother of his father, who had died years ago. He needs Aladdin to help him retrieve an old oil lamp from a cave, but tricks him and traps him inside the cave. But Aladdin escapes with the lamp and his life. One day, when his mother is cleaning the lamp a powerful genie appears who must give the holder of the lamp whatever they wish. That may seem wonderful, but listen to this story to see how that can get a person into trouble.
