Book
Eight of Aesop's entertaining fables are retold here with a difference. Clever, imaginative reworkings of these timeless tales bring ancient Greece and the character of Aesop, the freed slave turned master storyteller, vividly to life. Aesop himself introduces each story with the real-life events that inspired his tale. Ideal for young readers who are beginning to enjoy reading alone, the stories are also perfect for sharing with younger children. Glowingly illustrated in warm, rich tones, these moral lessons remain as relevant to today's children as they were to the ancient Greeks.
