In this collection of over three hundred fables, Aesop ravels the morals behind every action in human nature. Included are the favouries “The Shepherd-Boy and the Wolf,” “The Tortoise and the Hare,” and “The Dog and the Shadow.” These time-honoured morals teach children that persuasion is better than force, slow but steady wins the race, and to look before you leap.
A fable is often thought of as a story intended to help children learn wholesome values and how to behave within society at large. However, in ancient Greece, fables were used as a means of persuasion, as the moral of a fable can be delivered in an indirect manner. This helped philosophers such as Plato,
Aristophanes, and Socrates argue controversial points without offending their audience.
This cloth-bound book includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket, and is limited to 100 copies.
