Aesop's Fables usually feature animals, but their stories are all too human. Because Aesop addressed universal human foibles, his stories are as relevant today as they were in antiquity. With a wonderful format of large print with wide spacing, the stories can be read to or by children with ease. The retelling of the stories is lively and contemporary without losing their ancient flavor. The simple, stylized watercolors depict the stories and their characters with bright humor.
