Our editions feature charming illustrations and gently updated text that retain the stories' original aesthetics, while appealing to a modern audience. Additional features include pages defining fables and morals, an introduction to Aesop, a Think-About-It section, activities for further learning, and an introduction to both the author and illustrator.
