"Aesop's tales get a delightful makeover in this silly series. Each book features one fable retold and includes plenty of jokes as well as updates to the story that kids will understand. (Think a shepherd who really needs to charge his phone.) Following the story is information about Aesop and the original fable. Readers then get a chance to examine the moral of the story by applying it to their own lives. Discussion questions and a glossary are included. The illustrations are fun and colorful from start to finish and are so vibrant that they appear to burst from the pages. –VERDICT A highly recommended purchase for schools and parents."
