Review

Ten of Aesop's fables are here retold within the framework of a storyteller who tells and sells his stories for a living. Hartman himself is a storyteller so is the ideal person to understand who Aesop was and why he told fables, as well as retelling them in an ideal way for reading and telling to others.

These are some of Aesop’s best known tales, and each is ended by a brief explanation of the point the story is making, which also forms an illustration. Aesop prefaces each tale with the same phrase, which explains who and what he is, and acts as the traditional verbal interaction between teller and listener.

The plentiful illustrations appropriately combine ancient and modern styles.
