Aesop's Fables

Aesop's Fables

by Aesop

Many of these tales are so well known they have given us phrases we use every day — such as "dog in the manger" or "sour grapes" — but even the rarer ones seem familiar, because their simple morals are based on universal truths. From the tortoise and the hare or the boy who cried wolf to the treacherous partridge or big and little fish, Aesop's wise and foolish creatures are a lasting delight.
