Author Info
Not much is known about this Greek writer. His fables, always ending with a proverb summing up the story's moral, were written to demonstrate the frailties of human life. Many figures of speech, such as "sour grapes," are derived from Aesop's tales.
From the Publisher
Annotation This collection of more than 60 of Aesop's fables includes "The Tortoise and the Hare," "The Boy who Cried Wolf," and "The Lion and the Mouse." Color illustrations accompany the text. Named a Year 2000 Notable Book by the New York Times, and one of the Best Children's Books 2000 by Publishers Weekly.
First Line Every day a poor shepherd sent his son to take their few sheep out to pasture. "We can't afford to lose even one," he would tell the boy, "so keep a close eye on them. And if you see a wolf, shout as loudly as you can, and the whole village will come to drive the wolf away."
Editors Note This new translation is the first to represent all the main fable collections in ancient Latin and Greek derived from the legendary Aesop, arranged according to the fables' contents and themes.
