Aesop’s Fables with an introduction by Isaac Bashevis Singer and illustrated by Murray Tinkelman this edition was published in 1968 by Doubleday & Company, Inc. You can read our earlier post on Singer here. This book is always at my hand to read when our politically correct arena gets way too rowdy. These fables are great tools to use to expose and ridicule our ills and vices. They are short, teach us a lesson in the form of a moral and some are really funny. A great way to assuage any anxieties that may develop through the day.
The Aesop’s Fables offer us a little daily humor and another look at our moral compass. The short stories are told straight and lessons are there to be learned.
Let’s take a look at a few of the fabulously illustrated ones from this book.
It was common at one time to ask the storyteller for the moral of his story often times before he finished telling it. If you want more Aesop Fables then here are two wonderful websites here and here with more stories to read.
