Revue de presse

This book makes good use of the format to showcase 10 traditional tales. Five of the fables are presented on handsomely illustrated spreads, each including a dramatic 3-D sculpture that takes center stage and two smaller foldouts embellished with movable parts that contain the bulk of the text. Whether it’s a smug-looking goose spreading her wings and lording it over a golden egg, a crow perched atop a tree clasping a piece of cheese in her beak while a hungry fox looks greedily on from below, or a rope-tangled lion that seems to bound right off the page, each centerpiece pop-up does an excellent job of grabbing readers’ attention and drawing them into the story. In each case, a foldout or pull-tab animal cleverly incorporated into the scene can be manipulated to reveal the tale’s moral. Five more fables, including “The Wind and the Sun,” “The Dog and His Bone,” and “Two Travelers and a Bear,” are presented in a single spread via mini booklets. Throughout, rich earthy hues, lush forest landscapes, and vivid detail make the illustrations appealing. The straightforward text aptly conveys the gist of each tale, and a brief section offers background about Aesop. Share this book aloud to introduce these well-known fables but be prepared to hand it over to children eager to explore the delightfully detailed and fairly sturdy pop-up pages on their own.
SLJ, September 2011

Illustrator: Moerbeek, Kees
Illustrator: Beatrice, Chris
Illustrator: Whatley, Bruce

Huge, extravagantly designed and detailed pop-up illustrations for 10 classic cautionary tales showcase a trio of uncommon talents. Beatrice and Whatley collaborate seamlessly on the visuals, producing in traditional outdoor or rural settings a cast of realistic but broadly expressive animal figures. Many of these, particularly the wonderfully snarky-looking goose laying gold-foil eggs and the frantic, massive lion that lunges up at viewers through an entangling net as his spread opens, will elicit involuntary “Whoa”s of startled admiration. The fables, one per opening except for a miraculously un-crowded quintet gathered on the central spread, are paired to large central tableaux and smaller but only slightly less complex pop-ups in corner booklets. All are pithy versions of the usual Aesopian suspects written in a fluid, contemporary style (“You do indeed have a beautiful voice,” the fox assures the cheeseless crow, “but you don’t seem to have a brain!”) with some morals embedded and others laid out explicitly. Veteran paper engineer that he is, Moerbeek concocts ingeniously multilayered, interwoven constructions that are vulnerable to grabby little hands but, with careful supervision, sturdy enough to survive multiple shared readings. Timeless wisdom, splendidly decked out.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Aesop was an Ancient Greek story-teller and slave, famed and cherished for his short fables that often involve personified animals. In the renowned collection of works that is Aesop's Fables, he weaves moral education and entertainment together into tales that have been enjoyed by many, many generations. A lot of the stories in Aesop's Fables, such as The Fox and the Grapes (giving us the term "sour grapes"), The Tortoise and the Hare, The North Wind and the Sun and The Boy Who Cried Wolf, are well-known across the world. The 1st century philosopher Apollonius of Tyana said of Aesop that "like those who dine well off the plainest dishes, he made use of humble incidents to teach great truths." --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

livre anglophone broché souple en papier recyclé moyen format réédition bon marché récente (1994) du fabuliste de l'antiquité; cette version présente un centaine de fables dont certaines ont été rendues célèbres (car reprises par J de La Fontaine); chacune d'entre elle consiste en un court paragraphe en prose (et non en vers!) de quelques lignes à deux pages parfois illustré d'une gravure n&b et toujours terminé par une morale! ce petit livre bas de gamme mais assez complet constitue une excellente révision et permettra de lire ces histoires en anglais, de constater quelques différences avec celles de la Fontaine, mais ne remplacera pas un gros ouvrage de bibliothèque mieux illustré; parfait pour lire aux enfants pendant les vacances!

J'avais commandé ce livre sur les recommandations d'un article sur le net mais suis un peu déçu car ne correspond pas à ce que j'attendais. Ce sont les fables de la fontaine en anglais avec peu d'images donc pour un enfant bien plus grand que le mien.
Pas un mauvais article, mais qui ne correspond pas à ce que je voulais.

J'ai acheté Les Fables d'Esope pour mon petit-fils qui aime les dessins de Rackham
Je suis sûr que les Fables d'Esope lui permettront de perfectionner ses connaissances en Anglais.
Je suis très satisfait

My son (9) and daughter (5) loved these! Eloquent, yet accessable vocabulary supported by beautiful illustrations. My son particularly enjoyed guessing the moral of each story.

HASH(0x8c4c1a20) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, but not what I expected 21 décembre 2002
Par Jessica Fisher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It is true - the drawings in this book are beautiful. However, I was hoping that the telling of the fables would have more of the original flavor. The stories have been updated to at least the 20th century. I am sure that when Aesop told the stories, the Country Mouse and the City Mouse didn't have to dodge automobiles and miss stepping in bubblegum. It was misleading that Aesop is listed as "editor" because the stories are not as he told them.
The overall messages (ie morals) are there. I just was disappointed that it was so updated. I'm sure that serves its purpose, but it wasn't what I wanted.

HASH(0x8c4c1c6c) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful book! Just needs MORE content! 12 janvier 2006
Par Hummingbirds - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was a gift for my 4 year old. It seems to be a re-written edition which is fine, as it is easier to understand than other versions we have. The illustrations are wonderful and my daughter loves them. However I was a bit disappointed that they could not fill this book with more fables. It seems like sort of a thin book for the price, and some of the most popular fables were omitted from this version. Just an FYI, since Amazon seems to be mixing reviews on here among various versions of books... this review is for ISBN# 0-7624-0413-2. I bought this and other books based on reviews that were not relevent to the particular version of the book I purchased.

HASH(0x8c4c1c30) étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Aesop for Younger Readers and Listeners 25 septembre 2009
Par Shanna A. Gonzalez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Every child should read Aesop at some point, not only because of the time-honored wisdom contained in the stories, but also because knowing Aesop gives a cultural literacy that will bring great pleasure. Many of Aesop's morals have become proverbs whose original meaning is not remembered. When these privileged readers hear someone mention sour grapes, or they are admonished not to count their chickens before they're hatched, they will know exactly what is meant.

This gorgeously illustrated version makes the ancient genre of morality tales accessible to young listeners. The collection includes 52 fables (about a quarter of the corpus attributed to Aesop), including most of the better-known stories -- the tortoise and the hare, the boy who cried wolf, Androcles and the lion, and the stork and the crane -- as well as some lesser-known ones. Pinkney's mesmerizing watercolor paintings will hold attention long enough for the well-written text to be read aloud, and the traditional pithy moral will help anchor it in the memory. A child who has experienced this book ought to be delighted to encounter a broader Aesop collection later (although they will always remember the pictures that accompanied their first Aesop experience). If you must choose only one Aesop collection, choose one with more stories, but if you can afford a version for the younger set, this is an excellent choice.

HASH(0x8c4d021c) étoiles sur 5 Outstanding! 6 mars 2010
Par Catrina Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've always loved Aesop's Fables and to have them all in one neat collection here on my Kindle for my PC is just great! There ARE capital letters where appropriate, so I'm not sure what the other reviewer here had going on with their version. Rest assured that the problem has now been fixed and it's easy reading. My only complaint is that the individual stories listed in the contents are not click-able and you do have to navigate page by page to get where you need to go. I still believe that this deserves a five star rating though in spite of that just because it is so nice to have all the fables in one place like this for free. You can't beat it!
