    What I enjoyed most about this collection of Aesop's fables is the author's invention of a framework around which they're told. He imagines the circumstances around which Aesop might have originally told each tale. I wish it weren't out of print, because I'd like to order a copy for my library's collection. :o( I'd also like to see a second collection of tales--how about More Aesop's Fables, Saviour?

    This is a collection of eight Aesop fables. I was familiar with a few of them (The Lion and the Mouse, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs) but the others I do not remember reading (The Cat's Bell, The Wolf and the Dog, The Fox and the Stork, The Frogs That Wanted a King and The Jay and the Peacocks). I like how the morals taught are clearly displayed at the end of each story and at the beginning of each fable is an introduction as if told by Aesop himself, setting up [...]

    This book is a collection of Aesop's Fables and in it I read two different stories. The first story I read was The Lion and the Mouse and the second story was The Frogs That Wanted a King. The Lion and the Mouse is such a cute tale. Before I read this story, I thought the lion got a thorn stuck in his paw and the mouse helped him get it out I was very wrong. This version the lion frees the mouse and in return the mouse saves the lion when poachers catch him. I love the moral of this story and th [...]

    I loved reading this book. In this version, there was a preface before each story of where Aesop was and who he was with and telling the story to, before the story even started. It gave a very good explanation, and helped put you in the shoes of the recipient. I was a able to learn a very good lesson from each of the stories. They made me think in depth about how I view my place in life, and if I appreciate it or not. I want to be content with what I have, but always striving to make myself a be [...]

    This collection of Aesop's Fables would be a great addition to any child's to-read list. Aesthetically, the illustrations are very well drawn and contribute greatly the overall look of the book as well as the morals to the story. My favorite thing about this book is that is it written as if you have a window into the past and Aesop is telling his fables himself. I also like how he shares how he came to developing his stories as he goes from being a slave to a free man.

    This 2005 book of fables is a great read! The illustrations are amazing and the background the author provides prior to the beginning of each story provide the reader with great information. This would be a great book for children ages 6-14.

    Saviour Pirotta caught my attention with his well written introduction. I was literally holding my breath at some points during his adaptations of Aesop's Fables with his gentle weaving of what it's like to not/to be free. He builds on a platform of freedom in all the stories. I found myself digging deep and contemplating very heavy and spiritual questions about problems in our world today and how I could help. This is quite a lot from a collection of stories from my childhood.In my opinion this [...]

    79 pages filled with 8 different lessons, 8 different stories told by Aesop. The story of The Cat's Bell, The lion and the Mouse, The Wolf and the Dog, The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs, The Fox and the Stork, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Frogs That Wanted a King, The Jay and the Peacocks all have different lessons to teach children. After reading the stories to a class a good project would be to let each student write his or her own story with a lesson at the end. This would help them not o [...]

    This book was very cute and interesting to read. I liked how this book had a few different books within the main book and how they all had to deal with different animals. I also liked how at the end of each small book, there was a moral that was stated at the end. For example, in the section The Lion And The Mouse, the moral of the story was that little friends make great friends. Another moral that I read and thought would be good for young children was to treat others as you would like to be t [...]

    I read The Lion and The Mouse out of this book. This fable is about friendship. I had never read this book previously, so reading it for the first time, I thought it was absolutely adorable. I really liked how bold the mouse was to stick up for her children and save her life. Then return the favor and save the lion. Children should always be friendly to one another and this Fable teaches them that. I think some, a ton, of adults should read this fable and remember what it is like to be friendly [...]

    Genre: Fables, young childrenThis version of Aesop's fables was enjoyable and easy to follow. The illustrations were fun to look at and added to the flow of the fables. A young child would be able to read this book and understand and enjoy it. It is a nice version for a teacher to use to introduce her students to Aesop's Fables.

    Pirotta, Savious, Aesop. Aesop’s Fables (2005). This is a collection of eight of Aesop’s Fables. The retellings of these fables are enhanced because at the beginning of each fable, Aesop himself introduces it with a story that inspired that fable. It intertwines the story of Aesop, a Greek slave who was later freed, and his experiences, with the tales that he told. Each tale offers a clearly stated moral, of course, that provides a good opportunity for discussion with children. The illustrat [...]
