Aesop's Fables Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Aesop's Fables

Still a good read 2,600 years on, this famous collection of Greek fables dates from about 600BC onwards, all attributed to the wise old Aesop. Like 'Animal Farm', the animals generally take on the human roles and keep the whole thing humourous while delivering a good point at the end. In general it is aimed at adults, not children.
