Description
Award-winning illustrator Christopher Wormell brings his vivid artwork to the classic "Aesop's Fables," a cornerstone of children's literature, in a visual feast to delight both children and adults. Gorgeous linoleum block prints illustrate a key moment in the story, highlighting the moral printed in Wormell's hand-cut typeface on the opposite page. This simple approach encourages parent-child interaction through storytelling, while an appendix provides each tale in more detail, along with a thumbnail of the illustration. Wormell's children's books are so beautiful that they double as adult art and gift books.
