The essential collection of more than two hundred of Aesop's famous animal fables. Many of these tales are so well known they have given us phrases we use every day - like dog in the manger or sour grapes - but even the rarer ones seem familiar, because their simple morals are based on universal truths. From the tortoise and the hare or the boy who cried wolf to the treacherous partridge or the big and little fish, Aesop's wise and foolish creatures are a lasting delight. Complete and unabridged.
