For more than 2000 years, the fables of Aesop have been enjoyed for the simple, powerful truths they encapsulate so pithily – from the story of the wolf in sheep’s clothing to the race of the hare and the tortoise.

This charming new compilation brings together dozens of the best-loved fables as well as some of the lesser-known tales. The stories are accompanied by black-and-white illustrations by the great Arthur Rackham.

This gift edition will delight children encountering the fables for the first time, as well as adults who wish to rediscover the wit and imagination of these classic stories.
