Reviews for Aesop's Fables


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2007 Spring
Economical in text and picture detail, the strength of Zwerger's pastel-tinted illustrations lies in the humorous expressions on the faces of the characters. The fable selections range from the familiar to lesser known. For younger readers, at times the moral may not be clearly related to the text.",,"Folktales and Nursery Rhymes Copyright 2007 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Publishers Weekly Reviews 2006 June #1
A dozen of the instructive tales appear in Aesop's Fables by Lisbeth Zwerger, including such favorites as "The Hare and the Tortoise,'' along with lesser-known parables such as "The Hares and the Frogs.'' Of the original edition published in 1989, PW wrote, "The text is crisp and succinct, the ink-and-wash illustrations are delicate yet often sharply revealing of character or mood."
