Aesop's Fables have much to teach, and have provided inspiration for children's books through the centuries and around the world. Their wisdom is welcomed by librarians and book lovers, as an essential addition to the bookshelf. In this highly illustrated collection, Margaret McAllister turns her pen to retelling these great stories. Stylishly written, Margaret covers all the best-loved fables as well as those that are less well-known. Along with its distinctive selection of stories - 28 in total - this collection is set-apart by its sensitive illustrations from Amanda Hall, whose graceful depictions of people and animals bring these fables alive. Timeless in its presentation and full of lasting values, this stylish hardback is a perfect gift for children to treasure and enjoy.

Her books for Lion are The Life Shop and High Crag Linn. AMANDA HALL is noted for her stylish illustrations of folk tales and legends. She is the illustrator of The Lion Day-by-Day Bible.
