Each book in this collection tells a story freely inspired by traditional fables. Using simple phrasing, the author introduces young readers to relatable personified animal characters. The stylized illustrations support the narrative and encourage the child to seek information that goes beyond the text. In addition, each fable contains a moral or life lesson that inspires young readers and, with the help of an adult, to form deeper and more meaningful connections.
