Animal Fables from Aesop

Available

Description

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.

Reviews

"The graceful full-color illustrations are both delicate and theatrical. . . . The whole feel of this book is in the tradition of La Fontaine: gay, witty, full of charm and foible." -- New York Times "New York Times"
