Front Cover
Read Books Ltd, Apr 16, 2013 - Juvenile Fiction - 404 pages
This book contains a delightful collection of stories and morals illustrated by Maud U. Clarke's lovely black and white ink drawings. About the author: Aesop (c. 620-560BC) is famous for his Fables which are still used as the basis of many children's plays and cartoons and to teach moral lessons today. He was born in Greece and little is known about his life except that he was a slave of Ladmon of Samos who received his freedom. Aesop probably did not personally commit his fables to the page but rather later eminent Greeks such as Socrates recorded them. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children.
