Highly Commended Best Classic Book 2012: Aesop's Fables

There's morals galore in this colourful retelling of the ancient fables


Posted: 20 May 2012
by Helen McKay-Ferguson

Alongside the likes of Plato and Aristotle, Aesop takes his place as an Ancient Greek who knew a thing or two about life. At least, that is, if all of those sage fables have been attributed to him correctly. In this edition, edited by Margaret McAllister, Aesop’s fables are retold with beautiful illustrations. There’s the The Hare And The Tortoise, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs, The Donkey And Her Shadow and many more besides. And in true Aesop tradition, at the end of each, there’s a wise moral message on which to muse.

Aesop's Fables retold by Margaret McAllister and Amanda Hall (Hudson, £12.99)
