Giga: New Aesopian Fables for the 21st Century
The Japanese word, "giga"-meaning caricature-was chosen because many of the characters in these fables represent common hopes, ideals, goals and shortcomings that shape society today. By learning and discussing the benefits of virtues, and the consequences of vices, people can develop the insight to more effectively shape their own lives and society in a more meaningful way. These 90 fables are based on Aesop's original fables; readers will readily recognize and enjoy how many fables-"The Cat and the Bell," "The Tortoise and the Rabbit," "The Ants and the Cricket,"-and others have now been adapted for the modern reader of today. This is the second edition which now contains illustrations by Yuko Sakai and is edited by Aleda Krause.
