Animal fables from Aesop
Share timeless wisdom with your children in these classic fables of Aesop, wonderfully illustrated with fabulous animal characters by Barbara McClintock.
Nine timeless fables, first told by the Greek Aesop, selected, adapted, and illustrated by Barbara McClintock. This read-aloud collection includes such familiar tales as “The Fox and the Grapes” and the lesser-known “The Wolf and the Lamb” and “The Crow and the Peacocks.”
Each fable is brought to life by McClintock’s uncanny ability to capture humanity, with all its strengths and weaknesses, in the expressions of her exquisitely drawn costumed creations--filled with the delicacy of line and color that has come to be her trademark.
The New York Times said, “The graceful full-color illustrations are both delicate and theatrical. . . . witty, full of charm and foible.” Entertainment Weekly said, “McClintock’s wittily stylish illustrations have the charm and detail of 19th-century children’s books. Her human-like animals are marvelously lively and expressive.”
This is a treasury with wise and funny stories you’ll love discussing, time and again, with children.
