From the Back Cover:

The gods help them that help themselves . . . We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified . . . Appearances are deceptive . . . These and many other familiar proverbs—in fact, many of the moral values that form the foundation of our daily lives—were expressed in tales from ancient Greece, credited to Aesop, the legendary storyteller.
This volume, edited by the celebrated English folklorist Joseph Jacobs, contains a rich selection of these time-honored tales, among them "The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse," "The Fox and the Crow," "The Lion and the Mouse," "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," "The Goose with the Golden Eggs," "The Old Man and Death," "Belling the Cat," "The Hare and the Tortoise," and dozens more.
Retold with wit and sparkle in simple, direct language, these short, clever stories offer young readers wonderful lessons in right and wrong, and many valuable insights into life, both its joys and perils. Over 170 classic illustrations by Richard Heighway bring the stories vividly to life for readers and listeners alike.

About the Author:

Aesop probably lived in the middle part of the sixth century BC. A statement in Herodotus gives ground for thinking that he was a slave belonging to a citizen of Samos called Iadmon. Legend says that he was ugly and misshapen. There are many references to Aesop found in the Athenian writers: Aristophanes, Xenophon, Plato, Aristotle and others. It is not known whether he wrote down his Fables himself, nor indeed how many of them are correctly attributed to his invention.
