About this title

Synopsis:

Twelve fascinating animal tales presented by an unbeatable team.

Aesop's fables are as wise and true today as they were more than 2,600 years ago. Now, distinguished author Doris Orgel retells these timeless stories for the next generation. A brave little mouse extracts a thorn from a lion's paw, steady tortoise beats cocky hare in a footrace, a boy cries wolf too many times.... Elegantly and economically told against a backdrop of expressive, detailed illustrations, this gift book presents Aesop's kindly lessons for today's children in a book sure to become an essential addition to any youngster's library. Each story is accompanied by an interesting fact about Aesop and his time; these build to an accessible history of the legendary figure.
