A political activist (700 BC) Aesop used animals in his stories/performances so as not to be offensive to his public and the authorities. The stories themselves were often tales borrowed from local lore which he adapted to make his social statements. They were the means to an end to depict the foibles of human nature.

Collection of 14 stories inspired by Aesop's fables 
In two volumes. Seven years onward 

The down-to-earth wisdom of Aesop's Fables is timeless and ageless. We are never too old to be reminded not to fall for flattery or complacency, or greed. 
- The Pecan Grove -

 Silver, a young cockatiel born in the Mississippi Delta, wonders why he lives in a cage while other birds can roam free.

He escapes when a storm breaks the door of the cage, and begins his quest to find the Kingdom of the Birds. He encounters mentors, unique characters and obstacles. He can't understand why he is willing to go through such hardship when he's not even certain the Kingdom exists.

Quatorze histoires en deux volumes inspirées par les fables d’Esope. A partir de sept ans. 

Esope était avant tout un homme bien intégré dans la politique d’Athènes (700 avant JC) et utilisait les animaux dans ses histoires pour transmettre ses idées sans être offensif. 

La traduction en anglais est fidèle. Ça aide beaucoup dans l’apprentissage d’une langue avoir déjà en tête l’histoire.
