About the Author:

Margaret McAllister is the author of A Friend for Rachel, A Ghost at the Window, High Crag Linn, The Life Shop, The Octave of Angels, and the Mistmantle Chronicles. Amanda Hall is the illustrator of The Lion Book of Day-by-Day Prayers and The Lion Day-by-Day Bible.

From Booklist:

Written as long as 2,500 years ago, Aesop’s fables are among the oldest stories still told, and their wit and wisdom hold up surprisingly well. In this handsome volume from the Lion Classic series, McAllister retells 29 of the tales, including some unfamiliar ones as well as old standbys. She fleshes out the bones of the fables with bits of dialogue, elaboration, and description before concluding each one in the traditional way, with a moral. Nicely composed and often richly colored, the illustrations add immensely to the book’s appeal. An appended note, called “Aunt Isa’s Bookshelf,” takes readers into the past to watch a girl named Margaret (presumably the author as a child) encountering Aesop’s fables for the first time, in a book without pictures or conversations, and thinking, “They don’t seem like stories. I’m sure I could make them more exciting than this.” Many lively, illustrated editions of Aesop’s fables are available, but larger libraries will want to include this attractive collection among them. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
