1.0 out of 5 stars Abridged and incomplete
By Amazon Customer on December 26, 2019
This is an inexpensive edition of Aesop's Fables, but it is not "unabridged" or "complete".
1. This book contains only 92 of Aesop's fables. Most other editions have more than 200.
2. Each fable takes up less than a page. About half of them are one paragraph.
3. These are not "translated from Greek" but from public editions that have been paraphrased and in many cases, paraphrased badly.
4. There are only 83 pages not 96. It's a very small, very short book.
5. No dialogue. I have an edition from my youth that has dialogue. Much more fun for kids.
6. Few illustrations. Only about a dozen of the fables have an illustration. The rest are just crammed on the pages together, sometimes three to a page. :(

Because Aesop lived centuries ago and his work is not copyright-protected you will find many really bad copies of Aesop's Fables on Amazon. I thought I'd be safe going with a large publisher, but this was a huge disappointment.
