For more than 2,000 years, the fables of the Greek slave known as Aesop have entertained readers with their wise reflections on human nature and their insightful, often witty “morals.” This beautiful edition features more than 300 selections passed down through the ages, drawn from the classic compilations of Roger L'Estrange, Jean La Fontaine, and Samuel Croxall and lavishly illustrated by the nineteenth-century artist Ernest Griset. Part fairy tale, part fantasy, part parable, each of these fables is a polished gem of storytelling. Readers young and old will delight in these timeless fables whose unforgettable characters hold up an enchanted mirror that allow us to see ourselves.
