About this title:

Synopsis: Aesop, the legendary Greek storyteller, lived in the 6th century B.C., but his wise and witty tales—each with its own distinctive moral— remain as popular in our own day as they were when first told. Here are many of Aesop’s best-known fables, all of them complemented with large, full-color illustrations of unusually high quality. The tales included in this volume are categorized according to the animals playing lead roles. Thus under “Lion” we have the fables of “The Lion and the Rat,” “The Lion and the Bull,” “The Lion and the Ass,” and several more, each with its own witty conclusion. Other animal themes include fables of the Fox, the Wolf, and the Eagle. Here is a wonderful introduction to Aesop’s immortal fables for boys and girls, a volume that is both beautiful to look at and enjoyable to read. Adults, too, will treasure this book. Color illustrations on every page.

From the Inside Flap: (back cover)
Aesop, the legendary Greek storyteller, lived approximately 2,500 years ago, but his wise and witty tales—each with its own distinctive moral—remain popular today. This collection includes many of his best-known fables, complemented with large, full-color illustrations by an international team of superb artists. The tales in this book fall into four separate categories based on the animal playing the lead role—the Eagle, the Lion, the Fox, or the Wolf. Here is a volume that both children and adults can treasure, as beautiful to look at as it is enjoyable to read.

(front flap)

This volume presents some of the best-known tales of Aesop, the immortal Greek fabulist. His tales are categorized here according to the animals playing lead roles. Thus under “Lion” we have the fables of “The Lion and the Rat,” “The Lion and the Bull,” “The Lion and the Ass,” and others, each capped off with its own witty moral. The book’s other animal themes include fables of the Eagle, the Fox, and the Wolf.

Few reliable details are known about the life of Aesop, but tradition has it that he was recognized throughout the ancient Greek world during the seventh and sixth centuries B. C. as a great storyteller. It is believed that he was a slave who gained both his freedom and widespread fame because of his ability to tell memorable tales, each of his stories having a witty ending that taught a lesson. Tradition also tells us that he served in the court of the great King Croesus of Lydia. Herodotus, the Greek historian, tells us that Aesop met a violent death in approximately 560 B.C., though the details of his death remain obscure. Aesop is also mentioned in the writings of Plato and Aristotle.
