Beautiful reprint of the 1912 classic. Aesop’s timeless wisdom, combined with Rackham’s enchanting art and Chesterton’s profound thought. Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing, and don’t kill the goose that lays the golden eggs! These simple allegories — abounding in paradoxes, ambiguities, and ironies — embody great truths. Attributed to a legendary storyteller of ancient Greece, they speak to readers and listeners of all ages and cultures.

Rackham’s thirteen full-color and fifty-three black-and-white images lend a perfect blend of humor and romanticism to the timeless fables. An illuminating Introduction by G.K. Chesterton complements V. S. Vernon Jones’s sprightly, concise, and idiomatic translation. This is a lovely book for the entire family.
