'My name is Aesop! Once I was a slave. Now I am a free man. I have refreshments to sell and stories to tell. Stop for a moment - and enjoy!' Bob Hartman uses all his skills as a storyteller to add humour, irony, action and clever dialogue to these new retellings of ten of Aesop's fables, which he has woven into an entertaining tale about a man who tells stories for a living. Included is a rich mix of familiar and less well-known tales selected for their relevance to the life of children today. Streetwise tricksters get their comeuppance, virtue is rewarded, and readers are shown the benefits of good behaviour - but with the Hartman touch these stories are far from being the typical moral tale. Animated, witty and characterful illustrations echo the flavour of the text.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Nodding toward Greek frescoes, Jago's warm and expressive collages are a strong complement to these inviting retellings." --Publishers Weekly


"A worthwhile addition to collections that don't already have numerous Aesop anthologies on the shelves." --Booklist
"[A] fresh approach to the classic collection . . . effective context for the fables." --Kirkus Reviews
