Review

"A much-loved classic that every child should have."  —Bookbag


"Every child should own a copy of Aesop's Fables. And this edition will furnish not only a handy collection of familiar tales, but is a beautifully-illustrated book which will be treasured for many years."  —Armadillo Magazine


"Quirky, independent heroines battle dragons and endure odds to conventional conclusions, and children familiar with classic fairy tales will enjoy revisiting characters."  —School Library Journal on Don't Kiss the Frog!


"With its many comic touches, this anthology presents once again the humor, folly, ingenuity, and wisdom that make Aesop so durable."  —School Library Journal

"Use this lovely compilation for deeper studies, or recommend it to students who would like to read further." — School Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

I know that there are many other compilations of Aesop's fables on the market, but I was looking for a balance between the classic stories and contemporary language so that my 7 yr old could read them on her own and understand what she was reading. This book offered both, as well as beautiful illustrations. Unlike some of the other compilations, these simple illustrations do not compete with the stories. I love the clean, simple lines, as well as the light, airy feel of Fiona Waters' work.

I vaguely remember being read some of these stories as a child, but they are pretty bad. Each story is only a page long, and I guess they can teach children some values, but after a few stories, I had to take a second to figure out if there was even any point to the story for me to explain. My 6 year old son was not too amused with this book.
