Aesop’s wise and witty fables are among the most popular stories ever written—and Charles Santore’s richly illustrated version is one of the most gorgeous editions ever published. Unavailable for a number of years, this dazzling interpretation features lavish art that provides a fresh perspective on Aesop’s beloved characters. Santore has arranged these timeless tales by animal, making it easy to follow each creature from one situation to the next and gain a better understanding of how its actions parody human behavior.
Charles Santore’s many awards include the Society of Illustrators Award of Excellence, the prestigious Hamilton King Award, and the Alumni Award of the Philadelphia College of Art. His work has been exhibited in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and among the classic tales he has illustrated are The Fox & the Rooster, The Little Mermaid, and Snow White.
