Aesop’s Fables, An Illustrated Classic contains 100 short fables–each with a moral. I am sure most readers are familiar with sayings like “If we want to use the law, then we have to obey the law;” “Don’t be fooled by flattery;” and “Slow but steady wins the race.” They are hidden messages in The Wolf and the Lion, The Fox and the Crow, The Hare and the Tortoise . Gently told the animals in each tale represents humans. The gentle humor in each telling, not preachy, that teaches a lesson about human nature.
This Critic’s Review:
Legend says Aesop lived 600 BC. His stories certainly have withstood the test of time. Each fable entertains without insulting, the best way to serve up a lesson on life.
