Animal Fables from Aesop
Nine timeless fables, first told by the Greek slave Aesop, selected, adapted, and illustrated by Barbara McClintock. This collection includes such familiar tales as "The Fox and the Grapes" and the lesser-known "The Wolf and the Lamb" and "The Crow and the Peacocks." Each fable is brought to life by McClintock's uncanny ability to capture humanity, with all its strengths and weaknesses, in the expressions of her exquisitely drawn costumed creations--filled with the delicacy of line and color that has come to be her trademark.
