250 x 184 mm. 48pp For 8+ years. ~Colour illustrations. [In stock in Australia, for immediate delivery]

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of this classic depiction of Aesop on stage, here, in all their wisdom and humour, are the best of these timeless fables, selected and adapted by Barbara McClintock and illustrated in her inimitable 19th-century anthropomorphic style.

This collection contains the artist's interpretations of nine fables, including such familiar ones as 'The Fox and the Grapes', and a fine selection of lesser-known examples, 'The Wolf and the Lamb' and 'The Crow and the Peacocks'. All are revitalised by McClintock's uncanny ability to capture humanity, with all its strengths and weaknesses, in the expressions of her exquisitely drawn costumed creations. Filled with the delicacy of line and colour that has come to be her trademark, these images are bound to please readers of all ages as well as collectors of fables for another generation.

'The graceful full-colour illustrations are both delicate and theatrical ... The whole feel of this book is in the tradition of La Fontaine: gay, witty, full of charm and foible' - New York Times.
