Illustrated by Calef Brown
Aesop was the greatest fable-maker of them all, and many of his tales have become famous through the centuries, among them "The Fox and the Grapes," "The Ant and the Grasshopper," and "The Country Mouse and the City Mouse."
Now—in this eye-popping treat—readers will find one of Aesop's classic fables ("The Tortoise and the Hare") plus four they probably haven't heard before. Young and old alike will delight in a Fable Fun page (complete with a spinner) to help readers make up their own versions of Aesop's classics. Best of all, you'll meet Aesop himself, who'll personally introduce you to his world of fabulous storytelling.
Ages four and up.
