This is a perfect book for reading at bedtime for children of 3+. It features a collection of Aesop’s fables retold with plenty of dialogue by the award-winning Sally Grindley.

Synopsis

The Aesop's Fables for the Very Young: The Hare and the Tortoise by Sally Grindley

'Once upon a time, a very hungry fox was looking for food, when he saw the most enormous bunch of fat grapes hanging from a trellis. O, how his tummy rumbled and his mouth watered! O, how is eyes grew big as saucers!' Lively re-tellings of the classic Aesop's tales, including The Hare and the Tortoise, The Fox and Grapes and many more, are complemented by jaunty illustrations. Perfectly re-told to form intorductions to the classic Aesop's tales for the 3+ age-range. A charming gift book for the very young.

Reviews

Aesop's fables are renowned as stories of cunning, morality and lessons of character. The re-tellings are short, lively and funny, complemented by beautiful illustrations. All the old favourites are included in this collection of 16 stories such as 'The Lion and the Mouse', 'The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse' and 'The Fox and the Crow'. A great introduction to the Fables themselves, this makes a perfect gift. For ages 3 - 6 years' - Kirkus UK
