There are many collections of Aesop's fables available, but most of these have been censored for children. Heidi Gregory's reading though, is the real deal, with all the macabre and politically incorrect details often brushed under the rug for the sake of taste. These are very old tales though for those interested in the history of them, this audiobook provides the most representation of the originals as possible.
Yes, there are quite horrible fables like "the Ethiopian and his master who tried to scrub his slave's dark skin clean with every type of wash possible", but that is really the most obviously racist fable in this collection.
As far as Aesop fables go that are read by one person, Heidi Gregory is by far the best narrator...or at least the only British one, which is the main reason I purchased this audiobook.

Heidi Gregory does a fine job with narration of these old fables.I did not know a lot of them.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
