Informazioni generali



Celebrated children's author and artist Eric Carle presents eleven famous fables from the Aesopian tradition in this picture book collection. Each two-page spread features a somewhat fleshed-out version of one fable on the right-hand-side page, and a full-page illustration on the left. Fables include: The Lion and the Mouse / The Wolf and the Dog / The Fox and the Crane / The Cat and the Mouse / The Monkey and the Fox / The Rabbit and the Turtle / The Wolf and the Lamb / The Frog and the Ox / The Blackbird and the Peacocks / The Fox and the Crow / The Grasshopper and the Ants.

The fable retellings contained in The Rabbit and the Turtle were originally included in Eric Carle's 1988 Treasury of Classic Stories for Children, which included twenty-two folktales, fairy-tales and fables from Aesop, Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm. Some of the content here appeared even earlier, in Carle's Twelve Tales from Aesop, published in 1980. Leaving that publication history aside, I found this an engaging collection, and enjoyed Carle's retellings. I also enjoyed his artwork (which I tend to find more interesting than pleasing), although I'm not sure how well it worked as an accompaniment to these fables. I'm glad to have read this one, both because Carle is such an important figure in the world of children's literature, and because I have an interest in Aesopian retellings, but on the whole I think I prefer other collections (the Milo Winter and Jerry Pinkney ones, chiefly) to this one. Still, fans of Carle who are also looking for Aesop collections, or who enjoy animal stories might want to give this one a try, and it is to them I would recommend it.
