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!
Aesop's Fables by Beverley Naidoo
'The Lion and the Mouse', 'The Eagle and the Tortoise' and many more favourite fables await. Sixteen spellbinding stories from Aesop's timeless collection are retold by Carnegie Medal winner Beverley Naidoo, depicted with stunning illustrations by award-winning Piet Grobler.
A delightfully illustrated book to pick and choose fables, or just read all the way through, while enjoying the vibrant colours of Africa in Aesop's world. Armadillo Magazine
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.
