Aesop's Fables retold by Margaret McAllister
Review by The Mole
Aesop's Fables have been with us for generations and are retold at each generation by contemporary writers. But what can you say about the tales that hasn't been said so many times before. The fables retain their relevance, in some form, for each generation and all we can do is look for a version that will engage the current generation of children and Lion have done that with this collection.
In this retelling all the popular stories are present as well as some of the lesser known ones and are retold in modern accessible language for the benefit of young readers and parents to share. The numerous illustrations are bright and, through their cartoon quality, bring amusement to the stories as well.
A very nice telling presented in an exciting way that is sure to entertain and impart the meanings of the fabes to the present generation.
