Aesop's fables are stories which contain lessons and morals. This reproduction of Aesop's fables has been taken from Walter Crane's versions which contain beautiful illustrations for each fable. The colourful animal characters teamed with ornate designs make this book truly unique. The ideal gift for a little one. A child's name is included on both the cover and on a dedicated opening page to which a message can be added. Part of our From the Archive range of gifts, which contain timeless classics from a bygone era; each book within this range will be presented in a beautifully designed gift box. Taken from the historic archives of Frederick Warne and Penguin, specially stored in the basements of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
