Product description

Review

'Michael Rosen's thirteen retellings are vivid and clear. They are not over-wacky 'modern'; versions, but the original tales retold with exactly the right mix of description and lively speech... Taleen Hacikyan has made the book both beautiful and rather unusual. Her leafy endpapers introduce the reader to the strange dark natural setting of Aesop s tales.' --Awfully Big Reviews (20 July)

'There are some truly beautiful reworkings of the classics for older children who still enjoy illustrations. Michael Rosen and Talleen Hacikyan have produced a lovely Aesop's Fables.' --The Daily Telegraph

We purchased this as an add-on for my son's 6th Birthday and I can tell you without any doubt that this is an essential addition for every family! Classic tales, beautiful illustrations and a wonderfully bound book all add up to one thing: Quality time with your child/children! This captured my son's imagination from the get-go and after each story ending with "The moral of this story is..." we had a discussion about it and he had lots of questions too which is an obvious sign that he was actually listening to the story, as opposed to delaying bedtime ;-)

On a serious note, a really fantastic book which every child must have read to them!!

Fabulous illustrations and Michael Rosen has brought the fables up to date for the 21st century. A lovely book for anyone interested in Aesop's Fables. Children will love the stories too.

Beautiful illustrations and the stories retain their poetry whilst being easy for a small child to understand. One to read over and over.

Wonderful book, with great illustrations and moral stories. Each fable has been written in a short way that will keep your young one's attention, they're even ended with a note describing the moral of the story.

Well written, with children in mind. Perhaps it may have been better, if some rather less obscure fables had been included.
