A gorgeous new take on Aesop's Fables with stories from around the world masterfully illustrated by an award-winning print-maker.

The world is connected, and so are our stories. In this picture book, stunningly illustrated with Holly Berry's hand-carved wood cuts, we're introduced to short versions of Aesop's Fables as they're told in various corners of the globe.
The stories included are:
The Heron (USA, New England marsh)
The Lion and the Mouse (African plains)
The Ants and the Grasshopper (China) 
The Tortoise and the Hare (USA, southwestern desert)
The Fox and the Grapes (Israel)
The Bear and the Bees (Andes Mountains)
The Crow and the Pitcher (Greece)
The Two Goats (Swiss Alps) 
The Wolf and the Crane (Siberia) 
Praise for Told and Retold: Around the World with Aesop's Fables:
"The stories are short and sweet, but better than the neat retellings are the beautiful block-print illustrations...Gorgeously crafted wordless pages between subsets of stories give readers a chance to pause and reflect...A vivid, charming take on these beloved fables." Kirkus
