This edition has a big omission-"The Little Boy Who Cried Wolf" is not in this version of Aesops Fables. Regarding the illustrations-all characters are depicted as animals, which is correct in many, but not all of Aesop Fables. Text accompanying each story is only fair, not really good. I would not recommend this version. There are much better, and more complete versions of Aesops Fables available.
