The Lovereading4Kids comment
Witty and wise, Aesop’s fables are perfect short stories with a powerful message for readers of all ages. In this beautifully illustrated edition Beverley Naidoo includes favourites such as The Lion and the Mouse in which a tiny mouse begs to be spared by the mighty lion on the grounds that he will save the lion at a later date. The lion scoffs but, lo and behold, the mouse does save him! In The Donkey, The Jackal and the Lion the lesson is a less kind one – the Jackal betrays the Donkey and soon both are killed by the Lion!

Get hold of this book and treat yourself to a masterclass in witty, tender and tough story telling... Treat this book as a collection of easy to read stories, as a re-telling of some ancient fables, as a witty comment on talking animals, as stories to share with 6 to 60 year olds, as lessons for the living... it will not disappoint, and will draw you back again and again.
