Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best of all  Oct 30, 2008
Best pictures, best stories, best-phrased conclusion of all the children's fable books out there. Each book has its own take on the story & the concluding moral. This one is clear, concise, fun, up-to-date, and also beautiful.
 
Fun reading to my child  Jul 28, 2008
I bought this for my 4 year old. We read the stories and look at the pictures. Great little book.
 
perfect for the young  Jan 14, 2008
It's the perfect introduction for little ones to Aesop's Fables. The fables are quite short with amazing illustrations by Lisbeth Zwerger.
 
a good collection  Aug 11, 2007
In case the mix-up of reviews of different collections is confusing you, this review is of 0517679019, edited by Lois Hill and illustrated by Nora Fry.

There is an introduction, recounting the history of Aesop's Fables. In terms of number of stories, this collection probably can't be beat. 200 stories are included, and are listed in alphabetical order in the table of contents. In this edition, each story is told briefly, usually in one page or less.

I recommend this book for ministers, speechwriters, or anyone else wishing to make a point with a story. I myself used this book for that purpose before finishing reading the book. I was on a discussion thread in which the uses and misuses of statistics were debated. I scanned page 125, which tells of a woman who doubles her provision of chicken feed, hoping that the hen would double its output.

Just one flaw: illustrations are reused where they don't exactly fit. On page 22, we see the Hare taking a nap while the Tortoise is slowly approaching the finish line. That illustration is used again on page 141, where another Hare appears, but does not take a nap. On page 25, we see the Frog bloating himself up to resemble an ox. That illustration is used again on page 185, where another Frog appears, but does not bloat himself up.
 
Aesop's Fables  Nov 26, 2003
Aesop's Fables is a great book that is a collection of short stories. This book gave us famous phrases that are used today, such as "sour grapes." These are easy to understand stories for all ages(unless you are under the age of 7). It's amazing that such small stories have great meaning. Every fable gives some kind of small lesson at the end. The characters fit each story very well. This book is a must read for people who wonder where some of our everyday phrases come from and who want to learn a lesson from just a few sentences.
