Aesop's Fables

Aesop's Fables - Aesop, Beverley Naidoo, Piet Grobler As Naidoo notes in her introductory letter to the reader, Aesop’s fables aren’t like European fairy tales, with endings where everyone lives happily ever after. Instead, Aesop’s fables are African, with real life consequences. This is a delightful collection full of familiar stories, tweaked to make them sparkle in beautiful African ways.“One blistering hot day in the middle of summer, Lion and Warthog had the same idea. Get down to the waterhole and drink! They arrived at the same time and at the very same spot.‘I go first!’ growled Lion.‘Hayi khona! Oh no you don’t!’ retorted Warthog.”
