Review quote

"A much-loved classic that every child should have" -- Keith Dudhnath The Bookbag "It's a wonderful collection that readers of all ages will treasure and come back to time and time again" Lovereading "Clear, accessible writing with wonderful illustrations in beautiful warm colours. I think every child's library should include a copy of Aesop's Fables. This version is one I would be happy to recommend, and would make a lovely gift." Library Mice "Every child should own a copy of Aesop's Fables. And this edition will furnish not only a handy collection of familiar tales, but is a beautifully-illustrated book which will be treasured for many years." Armadillo Magazine "The brightly coloured almost cartoonesque illustrations have a cheeky flavour to them and mischievously invite you to search within them to add to the tales." The School Librarian
