Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Fables for the new millennium. Short Stories with a moral, like Aesop's fables, but in this case a moral relating to life and work in the twenty first century. Amusing and entertaining stories which will leave you with something to think about.

Pretty boring...would have rather read the Children's version. Made me realize ANYONE can write a book.

Great!! Love the stories!! Fascinating Book! Wealthmaker, Bookrix Review of Aesop Updated. 02 July 2009.

I liked this one, especially the 'Squirrel's Tale'. The voice and style is light and humorous and does a good job of delivering the lesson without being condescending or preachy. The book works well in Aesop's tradition, but still maintains his own unique perspective.Leslie ThompsonBookrix review of Aesop UpdatedOctober 17th 2009
