Aesop's FablesBook - 2005
Have you heard the story of the tortoise and the hare? Aesop's Fables is a collection of eight entertaining fables, retold with a difference. Saviour Pirotta's clever, imaginative reworkings of these classic tales bring ancient Greece and the character of Aesop, the freed-slave-turned-master-storyteller, vividly to life. Aesop himself tells the reader all about his life as a slave and as a storyteller, and explains the events that inspired his best-loved tales. These fables, gloriously illustrated by Richard Johnson, remain just as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago.
