Book Review #496 - Aesop's Fables by Aesop

21331



A timeless collection of 80 of Aesop's best-loved fables--punctuated by the age-old morals that have instructed countless generations. This volume highlights such fables as "The Goose Who Laid the Golden Eggs," "The Mouse and the Frog," and the one and only "The Tortoise and the Hare."


My Rating: 3/5


I read this as part of my 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die challenge where I try and read one book from the list per month.


I loved how all the characters in this book were animals as it added to the whole enchanting fable feel.


There were a few stories in the book that I had actually heard of like The Hare and the Tortoise.


The only issue I had with this book was the outdated language. The moral at the end of each story was actually quite confusing.
