Product description

This is a collection of new and wacky fables with fresh morals - the ones that, according to Jon Scieszka, "Aesop might have told if he were alive today". They are about all kinds of bossy, sneaky, funny and annoying characters and the general moral offeredis, "If you are planning to write fables, don't forget to change people's names AND avoid high places with cliffs".
