Aesop's Fables, by Aesop, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics:
  • New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars
  • Biographies of the authors
  • Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events
  • Footnotes and endnotes
  • Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work
  • Comments by other famous authors
  • Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations
  • Bibliographies for further reading
  • Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. As legend has it, the storyteller Aesop was a slave who lived in ancient Greece during the sixth century B.C. His memorable, recountable fables have brought amusing characters to life and driven home thought-provoking morals for generations of listeners and modern-day readers. Translated into countless languages and familiar to people around the world, Aesop's fables never tarnish despite being told again and again.This collection presents nearly 300 of Aesop's most entertaining and enduring stories—from “The Hare and the Tortoise and “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse to “The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs and “The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. Populated by a colorful array of animal characters who personify every imaginable human type—from fiddling grasshoppers and diligent ants to sly foxes, wicked wolves, brave mice, and grateful lions—these timeless tales are as fresh and relevant today as when they were first created.Full of humor, insight, and wit, the tales in Aesop's Fables champion the value of hard work and perseverance, compassion for others, and honesty. They are age-old wisdom in a delicious form, for the consumption of adults and children alike.D. L. Ashliman is emeritus professor at the University of Pittsburgh. He taught folklore, mythology, German, and comparative literature at that institution for thirty-one years. He has also served as guest professor at the University of Augsburg in Germany.… (més)

I really like Aesop's Fables more than I should, in a three-year-old's sort of wondering, "Really, people tried to make the world work like this?" Sort of a way. This edition, however, excels at lovely art and layout, which makes for much niftier uptake than usual. ( )

Well designed book by Barnes and Noble ( )

This is a collection of fables that have been attributed to Aesop.

What is there to say about Aesop's Fables? We all grew up with them, but I found it interesting to read them all in one place. Several of them were new to me. I will admit, though, that it was difficult to read more than a few in one sitting. I recommend that everyone reads them all at least once in their lifetime. ( )

I was one of those babies born in the late '80s who was raised with morals under Disney, Aesop and just knowing that God makes us all unique. Every cartoon and children's shows that we had was healthy while also being put together so you learned a very good lesson. And it is these stories that have influenced some of my own adult actions whether they were from the Serendipity series of stories, the Wee Sing series and even Aesop.

This was definitely a good compilation of Aesop stories - bringing both some old favorites and some new lesser known fables together in one book. Each fable is numbered while there is an index included in the back so you can easily look up the story by its main character while some of the more well-used morals are included in the beginning of the book or at the end.

To also keep the mind attentive the book includes a variety of illustrations - none of them colored. Some are you sketch-like drawings, some are probably oil work without the color and there a few others as well that maintains with the variety of stories that you will encounter.

The book includes a glossary that explains the various Greco-Roman deities that can be found in the stories and some of the geological locations. And if you are the type of person who is also interested in reading and learning you will find a good sturdy introduction that welcomes you to the fable, the idea about the unknown writers, the history of the fables in our world and of course whether Aesop was an actual author or not.

All in all this book is a good educational read while also bringing back timeless favorite stories that are simple to read, to understand and timeless classics. ( )
