Item Description...
The noted illustrator selects and illustrates his favorite fables by Aesop, offering colorful, unique interpretations of the Town Mouse and Country Mouse, the confident Hare and determined Tortoise, and other moral-bearing animals of Aesop's world

Publishers Description
""Please, O King," cried the Mouse, "spare me this time and I shall never forget your kindness. Someday I may be able to repay you." The Lion was so amused by this idea that he let the poor creature go."
In sixth-century Greece, it is said, there lived a slave named Aesop who was renowned for his brilliant storytelling. The collection of sly, witty fables that bears his name continues to delight readers of all ages. Michael Hague has selected his favorite fables and illustrated them with beautiful paintings in the style that has made his work so popular.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
There are (at least!) two editions reviewed here!  Oct 9, 2003
Read carefully, and realize that the Publisher's Weekly review and several of the comments do not refer to this edition!

The body of Jacob Lawrence's artwork is a national treasure. These drawings may be black and white...they are also exceptional artwork by one of America's finest artists. In choosing this edition, you share not only Aesop's Fables with a child, but also truly great art.

Most kid books are just fluff. Boring stuff.

Aesop's Fables, on the other hand teach REAL VALUES: hard work, honesty, unity, etc. And we hear people refer to various fables on a regular basis throughout our lives.

A child is really disadvantaged if he doesn't get exposed to these valuable stories and internalize them at an early age.

I recently had to repeat the story of "the boy who cried wolf" to my 10-year old son, in order to help him to improve his behavior. this is one of the most important books you could buy for your child.

--George Stancliffe

Aeosps Fables are more than good, theyre grrrrrrrrreat!  Oct 30, 2001
On my birthday in second grade, my parents gave me a package containing these stories, written by the ancient Aesop. I read through it, at first not enjoying it much, thinking ,"What fun could it be to read something wrtitten by some old guy?" after reading through one fable, I was changed. My heart lightened, and I finished the book inside my favorite blanket within a day,and my parents were surprised that I had already finished. And even if it was heavy reading for a second grader, I loved it and have read it several times over again. I suggest that everyone should read this book because of the helpful morals that allow you to understand everyday life.
