Editorial Reviews

These fables date back to the sixth century, BC. Literary historians question the existence of Aesop. Perhaps someone collected a group of parables coined by anonymous writers, and the mythical Aesop was given credit for authoring them. Regardless of who wrote them, these parables have remained relevant across time. With their global reach and universal truths, they set the template for future folk tales. Parents of every culture can enchant their children with these gem-like morality plays. Narrator Samantha Worthen’s voice has a high but resonant pitch. Her tone is familiar rather than curious; both Worthen and the listener are treading beloved old ground. Worthen’s captivating recitation will help listeners to rediscover charming plots, coy and sly interactions, delicate ironies, and pithy moral lessons.

Great bunch of stories there's something to learn each time through. Could have been organized in chapters maybe?
