Description

Mary Ann Hoberman and Michael Emberley have added Aesop's fables to their bestselling and award-winning series. Rediscover familiar tales and find new favorites in this delightful collection--these are fables as you've never seen them before!

Aesop's fables are perennial favorites with parents, teachers, librarians, and kids alike, and this collection includes both beloved tales such as "The Ant and the Grasshopper" and "The Lion and the Mouse," as well as less familiar but equally charming stories like "The Peacock and the Crane."

While there are many other editions of Aesop's fables, most include the traditional text and either focus on a single story or include hundreds of fables. Mary Ann's rhyming text coupled with Michael's lively art offers a more approachable and kid-friendly retelling of each tale, and fables are a perfect fit for the YRTM format.

Review quote

"The familiar tales are told with gentle humor, and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations bring personality and life to the animal characters...a solid pick for most picture-book collections."--School Library Journal "The latest installment from [the] wildly successful series...the text is delivered in punchy, color-coded typography that makes abundant use of repetition and rhyme to bring the stories to readaloud life. Emberley's playful illustrations provide fresh interpretations of many of the tales."--Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books "Repeats the earlier books' winning formula...All are retold simply and engagingly and are illustrated with lively spot illustrations."--Booklist "Emberley's pencil and watercolor spot illustrations bring fresh energy to the classic tales as well as a softening tone: the Hare and the Tortoise race on bicycles (the Hare wears spandex), and the golden-egg laying goose has a button-up chest, ensuring that the farmer doesn't have to use his knife. The jaunty rhymes and theatrical element of adopting a persona should spark enthusiasm from reluctant readers."--Publishers Weekly "Children's poet laureate Hoberman is really the master of unforced rhyme ... and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are as consistently spry as the poems."--The Horn Book
