Aesop's Fables
by Teodora Sirko / Aesop

Each fable contains a short narrative which conveys a hidden meaning, which represents the moral of the story. The characters are mostly animals and they illustrate a human characteristic, through certain gestures and words. The purpose of the fables is the improvement of human conduct. They try to point out and discourage the shortcomings of human nature and, at the same time, to arise our admiration for noble and honorable behaviour. The fables set a model for a virtuous life.

This edition addresses especially to children, through accessible language and richly detailed illustrations which appeal to young readers. Teodora Sirko’s illustrations capture the characters ‘ gestures and movements with precise fidelity to Aesop’s intent.
