Very interesting set of tales. I would love to read more by Aesop. I would use this book in my classroom to discuss history of Ancient Greece, and a lesson on folk tales.

Little stories with a moral, some are familiar and quite a few were fun to learn.
I used to love this book as a child, even now it is still enjoyable to recognise so many morales but in a very different format to how we usually see them.

The illustrations in the edition I have are particularly nice (and apparently done by the same illustrator who created the original illustrations for Alice in Wonderland) and really add to the feel that these are not modern tales.

I'd like to get a version with lots of color pictures. We really enjoyed this and Isabel spoke with fable-like language for a few days afterwards.
