Synopses & Reviews
Remember the fable of the fox and the grapes? The lion and the splinter? Well, they are nowhere to be found in this collection of fables. Here instead are the cockroach and the dog, the pigeon and the salami, the sheep and ... well, a bunch of other sheep. Aesop's age-old lessons endure, but thanks to the inspired silliness of brothers Paul and Marc Rosenthal, they are much more entertaining in this spirited storybook. The bite-sized stories are perfect for read-aloud sharing or for beginning readers. But be prepared for giggle attacks!
