Fables

Fables

by Arnold Lobel
Publisher: HarperCollins
Mass market paperback, 40 pages
List Price: $6.99 Sale Price: $5.94

In the tradition of Aesop and other fable-ists who came before him, Arnold Lobel wrote and illustrated his Fables. Starring adorable, quirky, vain, foolish, and wise animals, the tales are softened by the Lobelesque drawings. And the fables are original, with clever and sometimes dark twists.

The charming Lobel artwork and the funny fables make this perfect bedtime reading. There's really nothing not to love about this picture book. It's one Caldecott medal winner that truly hits the mark.

Review by Lauren Shearer
Lauren Shearer writes words for fun and profit. She also makes films, but everyone knows you can't make a profit doing that. Her other hobby is consistently volunteering way too much of her time. You can read more of her reviews here.

In Fables you will discover many funny stories. I liked this book because every story had a lesson to teach me. I liked the pictures in this book because the animals had clothes on and looked so funny! I recomend this book to ages 8 and up.
