Aesop's Fables are true classic tales! The illustrations in this book are really fun and it's great to share these well-known stories with kids! Everything from "The Tortoise and the Hare" and "The Lion and the Mouse" to lesser known tales like "The Porcupine and the Moles" and "The Lion in Love." There are over 60 short stories in this book! Highly recommended and timeless!
The stories are the age old ones with the morals at the end. They're fun to read. The reason this book is special is because it is illustrated by Arthur Rackham. I have a number of fairy tale books illustrated by this famous early 20th century artist.
