This paper presents a review about the presence of the Arabic world in Galician Children and Young Adults’ Literature from the twenty first century, including both traditional and current topics. As a starting point, we introduce the versions, rewritings and adaptations of One Thousand and One Nights along with other mythical and legendary tales. To continue with, we analyse those works presenting social and war conflicts. To finish with, we analyse the ones dealing with immigration. This review allows a view how Galician literature for young readers deals with the Arabic culture and how it pictures the “Other”, from the most stereotyped images to those more innovative.
