Amazon.com description: Product Description:
For more than two thousand years, the fables of Aesop have been enjoyed by children and adults alike, celebrated not just for their simple but powerful moral teachings, but also for the pithy wit of their expression. The number of characters and tales we owe to Aesop is countless, from “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” to “The Tortoise and the Hare.”
           
This small-format gift edition brings together some of Aesop’s most popular and enduring fables—among them “The Fox and the Crow,” “The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs,” and “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”—as well as some lesser-known tales, with classic illustrations by Victorian master Arthur Rackham. Rackham’s lush images capture Aesop’s vivid scenes and highlight the power of his quick characterizations; the resulting volume is a treat for fans of Victorian illustration and Aesop alike, sure to charm a new generation of readers young and old.
