Title: Fables from AESOP
Author: Tom Lynch
Illustrator: Tom Lynch
Genre: Fable
Theme(s): Slow and steady wins the race, Don't always believe what you hear, Nothing is gained without knowledge and practice, New troubles will replace your old ones if you do not overcome them, Regrets and precautions are useless misfortune has come, Never accept the offerings of a villain, Time and patience can solve many problems, Often gentle persuasion works better than brute force, Learn to recognize trouble before
Hannah Carlson
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.
