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." (from the first line)
""Please, O King," cried the Mouse, "spare me this time and I shall never forget your kindness. Someday I may be able to repay you." The Lion was so amused by this idea that he let the poor creature go."
In sixth-century Greece, it is said, there lived a slave named Aesop who was renowned for his brilliant storytelling. The collection of sly, witty fables that bears his name continues to delight readers of all ages. Michael Hague has selected his favorite fables and illustrated them with beautiful paintings in the style that has made his work so popular.
From the Publisher:
A collection of Aesop's fables with paintings by one of Holt's bestselling illustrators.
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.

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.
