Aesop's Fables

Front Cover
Collector's Library, 2006 - Juvenile Fiction - 256 pages
This timeless collection brings together three hundred of the most enduringly popular of Aesop's fables in a collection that will delight young and old readers alike. Here are all the age-old favorites-the wily fox, the vain peacock, the predatory cat, and steady tortoise-just as endearingly vivid and relevant now as they were for their very first audience. Although the three hundred fables in this collection are attributed to Aesop, and his name is synonymous with the form, it seems unlikely he was in fact anything more than a legendary figure. While some historical accounts maintain he was a slave with a prodigious talent for storytelling who lived during the sixth century B.C., many believe it unlikely that this whole stock of fables can be attributed to one individual.

The preface of the volume by Townsend is interesting & informative. The fables themselves are wonderful. The animals chosen to convey the lesson are perfectly selected. This is a timeless classic. I enjoy the fables more every time I read them. Read full review
