From the Dust Jacket
Journey to a fabled land where things aren’t always quite what they seem. Here, a dancing monkey becomes a king, a hungry wolf dresses in sheep’s clothing, a tiny mouse saves a fearsome lion, and a pokey tortoise dashes across the finish line before a speedy hare. In these timeless tales, you’ll meet extraordinary and fantastic animals, from a clever fox to a silly crow, who beautifully illustrate the benefits of humility, generosity, sharing, and helping others. This magnificently illustrated collection contains Aesop’s best-loved animal fables, as well as some not as well-known—24 memorable stories in all. The life lessons learned are as true today as when these fables were first written.

Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, tightly sandwich it between pieces of cardboard, then wrap in brown paper to send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a two-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
