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.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From School Library Journal
Grade 1-5-- Fifty-eight of the fables attributed to Aesop are given a fresh and totally inviting look here. In retelling the tales, Gatti uses spare but evocative language and includes the requisite moral for each. Many of Aesop's best-loved selections are included, but quite a few equally clever, if lesser known, fables find their way into this collection. Great attention has been paid to the arrangement of type, and both text and illustrations are beautifully reproduced on a heavy white paper stock. Employing a style reminiscent of illuminated manuscripts and Persian miniatures, Salter excels in the decorative aspect of her work. Detailed borders surround the stylized animal characters and enrich each story. Executed in gouache, the paintings are most successful when occupying a full page. The smaller paintings are attractive but lack the detail found in the larger ones. The colors are a pleasing mix of earthy brown, red, and green. While many versions exist, this book's artwork sets it apart. --Denise Anton Wright, Illinois State University, Normal

This handsome 1999 edition, The Classic Treasury of Aesop's Fables beautifully illustrated by Don Daily [ 1940- 2002 A.D. ] sets out Aesop's best loved stories and their moral message to delight and inform children of all ages.
This is a nice hardcover book with thick pages. It contains 20 of the well-known fables I learned and read as a child.They have been updated with more of a modern twist, but they are still wonderful. The illustrations in the book are spectacular. The words are not too small and not too large. At the bottom below each of the fable is the moral that the child should be learning from reading the passage. The majority of the fables are one page of writing. There are a few that have two pages. It is easy to read for young children.
There is also a CD with the Aesop's Fable book is a great resource to go along with the book. It does resource the book and advise what page the story can be found in the book.
I purchased this book for use in homeschool with a second and fourth grader. It worked great. It would also be suitable for smaller children.
