Not impressed with Aesops Illustrated Fables !!!
on 15 February 2014
I was very disappointed with Aesops Illustrated Fables. It is a beautiful looking book, leatherbound, gold edged pages, with wonderful illustrations, but its literary content left a lot to be desired. For example, it managed to condense, "The boy cried wolf," into 10 lines. I can download this same fable, consisting of 40 lines. Children want to enjoy a story, not a precis of it. In its defence, it explained the moral of the story very well. A good looking book, but in my opinion, not fit for purpose.
