Fulvio Testa is one of Italy's most distinguished artists and illustrators and has had many exhibitions in the United States and Europe. He has illustrated books by authors such as Anthony Burgess. The previously collaborated on Aesop's Fables.

From Booklist:

In this follow-up to Aesop’s Fables (2010), Waters and Testa reunite to present a collection of 40 lesser-known fables, such as “The Peacock and the Crane” and “The Crow and the Pitcher.” Waters has rewritten each of Aesop’s works into an easily digested, one-page story ideal for browsers searching for the right material. The familiar framework of Aesop’s original is retained, with the moral of each tale stated in boldface at the end, but Waters makes it feel contemporary. The bright colors, uncluttered landscapes, and almost cartoonish humans of Testa’s whimsical illustrations are frequently wry—the tale of “The Peach, the Apple, and the Blackberry” features a laptop computer and what looks like a BlackBerry device. This combination of straightforward language and winking illustrations is a winning one that begs to be read aloud at either bedtime or in storytime and would be ideal in a classroom setting. Grades 2-4. --Magan Szwarek
