It's a wonderful collection that readers of all ages will treasure and come back to time and time again Lovereading

Clear, accessible writing with wonderful illustrations in beautiful warm colours. I think every child's library should include a copy of Aesop's Fables. This version is one I would be happy to recommend, and would make a lovely gift. Library Mice

With its many comic touches, this anthology presents once again the humor, folly, ingenuity, and wisdom that make Aesop so durable. School Library Journal, USA

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
