Michael Rosen and Talleen Hacikyan join forces to portray some of Aesop's most famous fables in this beautifully illustrated picture book. Loyal dogs, tricky foxes and powerful lions are only a part of the large cast of animals that helps teach children age-old life lessons.
School Library Journal - November 1, 2013
"The simple, naive characters are richly shaded, expressive, and energetic as they interact in nicely etched, usually dark, settings...The handsome scenes and deftly told stories are welcome additions to the realm of Aesop."
Resource Links - October 1, 2013
"School and public libraries that need Aesop stories for a younger audience should purchase this attractive book."
Kirkus Reviews - September 15, 2013
"Rosen’s plainspoken telling engages children with injected humor...Hacikyan’s accomplished dry-brushed acrylics, luminous against black fields, incorporate handprinted leaves and textile block patterns, bespeaking her acumen as a printmaker. The leafy endpapers are stunning. Incorporating a vain crow, opportunistic wolves and foxes, talking trees and more, this collection both instructs and charms."
