Fables from Aesop
For centuries Aesop's fables have entertained readers. The overconfident hare who loses the race to the slow and steady tortoise . . . the clever fox who steals a piece of cheese from the foolish crow . . . and the tiny mouse who saves an angry lion from a hunter's trap. Tom Lynch uses crisp text adaptations and brilliantly colorful fabric collages to bring fresh life to these much loved tales.
"The lessons are boldly fresh, yet old as time . . . [the] creatures stitched in deep-hued fabrics are consistently humorous and appealing." (School Library Journal)
