The fables of Aesop have become one of the most enduring traditions of European culture, ever since they were first written down nearly two millennia ago. Aesop was reputedly a tongue-tied slave who miraculously received the power of speech; from his legendary storytelling came the collections of prose and verse fables scattered throughout Greek and Roman literature. First published in English by Caxton in 1484, the fables and their morals continue to charm modern readers: who does not know the story of the tortoise and the hare, or the boy who cried wolf?
Aesop's fables has survived through the ages. From parent to child, or from teacher to student, these fables go down from generation to generation teaching children through fictional stories, morals. These fables are also child- friendly. The main characters are always animals that have the ability to speak.--Submitted by A Lover of Good Books
