Aesop's Fables Aesop, perhaps the greatest storyteller of all time, lived about 2500 years ago in Greece. His stories, called fables, are fun to listen to and read. They also teach. Aesop understood human nature, and his fables taught his listeners to see what was happening in their lives and in the politics of their time. They still do. In this book you can listen to and/or read Aesop’s wonderful stories in this easy-to-understand, modern telling by Raymond Clark, illustrated by Hannah Bonner, a scholar/artist who grew up in the Greek/Turkish landscape where Aesop lived.
