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.

- A Chicago Public Library 2010 Best of the Best"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 "Repeats the earlier books' winning formula...All are retold simply and engagingly and are illustrated with lively spot illustrations." -- Booklist "The latest installment from [the] wildly successful series...the text is delivered in punchy, color-coded typography that makes abundant use of repetition and rhyme to bring the stories to readaloud life. Emberley's playful illustrations provide fresh interpretations of many of the tales." -- Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books "The familiar tales are told with gentle humor, and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations bring personality and life to the animal characters...a solid pick for most picture-book collections." -- School Library Journal
