  About The Book

Mary Ann Hoberman and Michael Emberley have added Aesop's fables to their bestselling and award-winning series! Rediscover familiar tales and find new favorites in this irresistible fifth YOU READ TO ME collaboration. These stories of classic characters-from wise ants and kind mice to sly foxes and hungry wolves-are fables as you've never seen them before!

With clear, color-coded typography and clever illustrations, this book "in two voices" uses traditional reading teaching techniques-alliteration, rhyme, and repetition-to invite young children to read along with peers or with an adult.

  Praise

"Children's poet laureate Hoberman is really the master of unforced rhyme ... and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are as consistently spry as the poems." The Horn Book

"Emberley's pencil and watercolor spot illustrations bring fresh energy to the classic tales as well as a softening tone: the Hare and the Tortoise race on bicycles (the Hare wears spandex), and the golden-egg laying goose has a button-up chest, ensuring that the farmer doesn't have to use his knife. The jaunty rhymes and theatrical element of adopting a persona should spark enthusiasm from reluctant readers." Publishers Weekly
