About this book

Aesop’s Fables | Children's Fiction

Beverley Naidoo , Piet Grobler

Human & Rousseau

A little mouse saves the life of a great lion; hungry Grasshopper, too lazy to store food, gets no mercy from the industrious ants; crafty Jackal tricks Klipspringer to escape death – but is himself tricked by the cock and the dog . . .

Here are sixteen of Aesop’s wise, witty and timeless fables, portrayed for the first time in an African setting. Aesop may have been of African origin, inspiring Beverley Naidoo and Piet Grobler to give the animals of Africa the starring roles in this exciting interpretation of one of the world’s great classics.

Ook beskikbaar in Afrikaans: Fabels van Esopus.
