Ancient tales that teach a moral and have stood the test of time. Couple a special selection of these celebrated fables with the brilliant rhyming talent of the author as she retells the stories in a lively, contemporary way, then add the stunningly beautiful illustrations by an award-winning artist and the result is a book t o treasure by young and old alike -- Sue Breslin * The School Librarian *
