One of the earliest volumes ever printed in English was Aesop's Fables , and these delightful, instructive little parables have never gone out of style. Though originally meant for all ages, it is generally considered the first real book to have an audience of children. Noted author John Cech--whose Classic Fairy Tale Collection has received wide critical acclaim--retells some of these best-loved stories in his own inimitable way. Martin Jarrie (illustrator of the bestselling ABC USA ) enhances the tales as never before with his unique folk-style art, making this anthology one of the most beautiful and necessary volumes for any child's bookshelf.


The beloved fables here include :

-   The Fox and the Grapes -   The Ant and the Grasshopper -   The Vain Crow
