About the Author

Bob Hartman is a performance storyteller par excellence. He has been entertaining audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for over 15 years with his books and performances, which bring together retellings of Bible stories and traditional tales from around the world with his own imaginative stories. His books are full of humour and insight, whilst his storytelling sessions are exciting, engaging, dynamic - and above all, interactive! He is well-known for his hugely popular Lion Storyteller books, the Telling the Bible series and the highly acclaimed picture books The Wolf Who Cried Boy, Dinner in the Lions' Den and The Three Billy Goats' Stuff.


"This lavishly illustrated book shows that there is always room for a new version of an old favourite. Aesop entrances people in the marketplace by his storytelling and Bob Hartman will entrance you too, with his fresh take on the traditional tales. Jago's illustrations are perfect - just take a close look at the expressions he puts on the animals faces - wonderful. The moral of each tale is given at the end, meaning they are memorable. It is a beautifully presented book that would make a lovely keepsake, as it is a book to which one can keep returning and finding new enjoyment." Lovely illustrations to these age-old, familiar tales with a moral - Those who appreciate a clever, thought-provoking tale of the traditional variety will enjoy it, and it's a nice book to share aloud. 4 stars.A" There is a timeless aspect to the telling of Aesop's fables. In terms of literacy learning, Aesop's fables are great for helping younger readers to understand the idea of implicit messages in text. But, in the end, it is the quality of story and storytelling that counts and here lies the absolute charm of this book - The illustrator and publisher have wisely ensured that the text itself is rich in its presentation: the quality of the paper, design and the historical resonance within the illustrations. Highly recommended for library collections.A"
