Here are the time-honored fables of Aesop as never seen before. Santore's
animals leap off the page in explosions of color, giving messages to ponder and
physical beauty to savor. "School Library Journal" called this
interpretation of the classic morality tales" a delight to the eye and ear."

About the author (1992)

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.
