A Star for Aesop’s Fables

A Star for Aesop’s Fables

British publisher Frances Lincoln and author Beverley Naidoo have put a twist on a classic with this Fall 2011 version of Aesop’s Fables. It was even given a nice starred review in this month’s Kirkus Reviews calling it a “…refreshing collection of 16 Aesop fables takes place in the South African veld, giving these timeless moral tales a visual and verbal facelift.” This is a fun read while continuing to be educational, as Kirkus points out “Naidoo sprinkles her text with native words and phrases such as ‘mealie’ (corn) and ‘mampara’ (fool), providing footnote translations when appropriate.” Decorated with colorful watercolor and pencil illustrations, this unique version of the classic stories we love is a must read!
