This book took several classic folktales and wrote them in a modern way that would be easy for children to read. I really liked how at the end of each fable Tom Lynch added a little life lesson that summarized the moral of each story. The fabric-collage-inspired illustrations were also very unique and intriguing.
This book was very similar to "The Rabbit and the Turtle" by Eric Carle. I liked the different form of art; it was quilted artwork rather than paintings, but the stories were a bit shorter and less detailed. And once again, I liked that the lesson of the stories were at the bottom of each page.
