Summary
This collection of eight fables brings Ancient Greece to life. The stories are retold with introductions that tell the reader all about Aesop's life as a slave and a storyteller, and explain the inspiration that lies behind his best-loved tales. Glorious illustrations by Richard Johnson complement Saviour Pirotta's warm and lively style, making this a collection to treasure. It includes stories such as: "The Cat's Bell"; "The Dog and the Wolf"; "The Lion and the Mouse"; "The Goose who Laid the Golden Egg"; "The Fox and the Crane"; "The Tortoise and the Hare"; "The Frogs who Asked for a King"; and "The Jay and the Peacocks".

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "A host of anthologies gather favorites old and new. In Aesop's Fables, Saviour Pirotta retells eight of the fables in the voice of Aesop himself ("My fables are short and simple. They are mostly about animals and simple country folk"). Richard Johnson illustrates most of the tales with one full-page, full-bleed painting and a smattering of spot art. A dramatic image of the lion caught in the net as the mouse attempts to free him is especially effective. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
