An Anthology of Aesop's Animal Fables
Few stories have endured as long as the fables of Aesop. In this edition, award-winning illustrator Helen Ward has chosen a dozen of her favourite fables to create this new collection to grace every bookshelf and bedside. The experiences described in the tales apply to us all and the lessons learned are both timeless and universal. Each creature comes to symbolise in its own way some particular aspect of the human condition - the sly fox, the silly crow, the majestic lion; all acting out their parts, uncomprehending, in the great game of life.
