For centuries, children and adults have treasured the stories handed down by Aesop, a slave who lived in ancient Greece. Known for their charm and simplicity, Aesop's Fables feature brief adventures of animals, birds, and beasts — with a moral message hidden in each narrative. Every child should be introduced to "The Hare and the Tortoise," "The Ants and the Grasshopper," "The Goose and the Golden Egg," "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," and other characters. This splendid gift edition features more than 130 of Aesop's beloved fables, enhanced with full-color illustrations and a wonderful CD recording of forty-two of the most popular stories in the book. 112 pgs. Softcover. Full color. 8-1/4"x11"
