Aesop's Fables

Aesop's Fables Summary

Aesop's Illustrated Fables features more than 400 fables, beautifully illustrated with engravings and color plates by Arthur Rackham, Walter Crane, and Ernest Griset. It includes all of the classic fables whose titles and morals have become part of our common cultural vocabulary, among them "The Boy Who Cried Wolf", "The Tortoise and the Hare", "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse", "The Dog in the Manger", and "The Fox and the Grapes". Part fairy tale, part fantasy story, part parable with a lesson to impart, each of these fables is a polished gem of storytelling craft whose luster never dulls.

Good book for those who are learning English as a second language. I chose this book because it was free, but the book was worth much more. Short but interesting stories are very entertaining.55
