Aesop’s Fables and Tales from The Brothers Grimm


Illustrated by Ayano Imai, this new interpretation of Aesop’s Fables is a beautiful addition to your library. Imai’s delightful illustrations bring these classic fables to life again for the modern reader. Though I feel the moral stories behind them will be lost on today’s youth, I don’t believe we should stop exploring the classics with them and opening the door to meaningful discussions.

Selected and illustrated by Lizabeth Zwerger, this collection of Grimm Fairy Tales explores old favorites like “Hansel and Gretel” and “Briar Rose” along with some lesser known ones. Zwerger’s artwork is stunning and captures the classic feel to these original tales. While definitely a well put together collection, the content of some of these stories can be a bit frightening for young readers.

I received unsolicited copies of these books from a publicist. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.

  1. I don’t think fables are lost to today’s youth at all…but maybe to some parents who don’t give such quality literature a chance. My 3 year old loves Aesop’s. We have a CD version with a book that he loves to listen to in the car. 🙂
