This timeless collection brings together three hundred of the most enduringly popular of Aesop fables in a collection that will delight young and old readers alike. Here are all the age-old favourites - the wily fox, the vain peacock, the predatory cat and steady tortoise - just as endearingly vivid and relevant now as they were for their very first audience. Arthur Rackham was the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period, and in this volume his delightful pen-and-ink illustrations have been beautifully and sensitively coloured by Barbara Frith.
