Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hague brings his signature nostalgic, intricately detailed style to 13 of Aesop's moral tales. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)

Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Grade 3 Up The simple elegance of Aesop's fables has attracted artists for centuries. This addition to the already-swollen ranks is better than most. There is a nice mix of familiar (``The Fox and the Grapes,'' ``The Hare and the Tortoise,'' and ``The Country Mouse and the City Mouse'') and lesser-known fables (``The Dove and the Snake,'' ``A Laden Ass and a Horse'' and ``The Marriage of the Sun'') in this collection. The writing style is formal yet direct and ideally suited to the ornately detailed pencil illustrations. This slightly antiquated writing style makes these fables better suited to independent reading than to reading aloud. Altogether, an interesting interpretation of the fables which would complement other volumes. Denise A. Anton, Cornbelt Library System, Normal, Ill.

Aesop's fables are famous world over. My kids enjoy it. Good for 2nd or 3rd grade readers. Nicely arranged stories. Simple and easy to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection July 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of fables, though the slightly archaic phrasing of the morals occasionally read differently than what I've grown up hearing. Still, most of these I read to my children as bedtime stories, which made for some excellent discussions. Apparently the discussions slowed the pace too much, as my kids finally snatched it to read on their own! I think that's the best review.

I enjoyed reading this because it is something that can be picked up and put down. I must say I like the original better than the revised edition.

This is more informative than I thought possible from a book that I thought was for children. it is more than I thought you could receive from such an old author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aesop January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Classic! Fast read good lessons. However, there were some punctuation and spelling errors. It is funny though how many of the aphorisms at the end of each fable are sayings we take for granted, and remarkable that they are still in use.
