An Anthology Of Aesop's Animal FablesHelen Ward
Few stories have endured as long as the fables of Aesop. In this magnificent edition, award-winning illustrator Helen Ward has chosen a dozen of her favourite fables to create this breath-taking classic 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. Fear, greed, arrogance, stupidity, all these and more put in an appearance, leaping straight to the heart of our understanding from each page of this exquisitely illustrated edition.
Includes the tales: The Hare and the Tortoise, The Lion and the Mouse and The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs.
