    " It is amazing to me how many of these stories have transcended time, and remain a literary and societal staple. They truly are an effective way of teaching some of the basic moral principles to children (and even adults). "

    " As Bruno Bettelheim has pointed out, stories, mainly fairy tales will be interpreted differently depending upon ones age, sex, life experiences, etc. Aesop's Fables should be read by everyone at different times in his/her life. Lesson are to be learned indefinitely!!. "

About the Author
Author Aesop

Aesop has been known in history and in legend since the fifth century BC, or earlier, as a gifted Greek storyteller and the author of the world’s best-known collection of fables. A Phrygian slave, there is speculation that he was freed as a result of his wit. Though little is known about his life, his remarkable wisdom regarding human nature, conveyed through his fables, has brought him great renown.
