What The Fox Learnt: Four Fables from Aesop

  1. Aesop i s p ee sop Ancient Greek , Ais pos, c 620 564 BCE was an Ancient Greek fabulist or story teller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop s Fables Although his existence remains uncertain and if they ever existed no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics.Scattered details of Aesop s life can be found in ancient sources, including Aristotle, Herodotus, and Plutarch An ancient literary work called The Aesop Romance tells an episodic, probably highly fictional version of his life, including the traditional description of him as a strikingly ugly slave who by his cleverness acquires freedom and becomes an adviser to kings and city states Older spellings of his name have included Esop e and Isope A later tradition dating from the Middle Ages depicts Aesop as a black Ethiopian Depictions of Aesop in popular culture over the last 2500 years have included several works of art and his appearance as a character in numerous books, films, plays, and television programs.Abandoning the perennial image of Aesop as an ugly slave, the movie Night in Paradise 1946 cast Turhan Bey in the role, depicting Aesop as an advisor to King Croesus who falls in love with the king s intended bride, a Persian princess played by Merle Oberon There was also the 1953 teleplay Aesop and Rhodope by Helene Hanff, broadcast on Hallmark Hall of Fame with Lamont Johnson playing Aesop.A raposa e as uvas The Fox and the Grapes , a play in three acts about the life of Aesop by Brazilian dramatist Guilherme Figueiredo, was published in 1953 and has been performed in many countries, including a videotaped production in China in 2000 under the title Hu li yu pu tao or .Beginning in 1959, animated shorts under the title Aesop and Son appeared as a recurring segment in the TV series Rocky and His Friends and its successor, The Bullwinkle Show The image of Aesop as ugly slave was abandoned Aesop voiced by Charles Ruggles , a Greek citizen, would recount a fable for the edification of his son, Aesop Jr who would then deliver the moral in the form of an atrocious pun Aesop s 1998 appearance in the episode Hercules and the Kids in the animated TV series Hercules voiced by Robert Keeshan amounted to little than a cameo.In 1971, Bill Cosby played Aesop in the TV production Aesop s Fables.The musical Aesop s Fables by British playwright Peter Terson was first produced in 1983 In 2010, the play was staged at the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town, South Africa with Mhlekahi Mosiea as Aesop.

  1. Read this with the seven year old before bed last night and she was really involved and loved the different messages that we discussed after reading She insisted on a 5 star rating, and I agreed with her completely the stories are interesting and they still ring true even today.


  2. This book is a collection of fables all involving a Fox called Master Reynard I like these fables as each one end with a lesson moral for the children to learn They are short so keeping the children s attention whilst you read to them should be a cinch and they use relatively simple language I would say that the age range for this book would be the 5 7 range This book could be read to a class with a teacher then discussing the moral of each story with the children and asking them questions about [...]

  4. This is a book containing four short fables, each of which contains an important moral which would be useful and relevant to young readers Each fable is only two pages long with only one framed illustration at the start of the story.


  5. Good but littleI personally liked the book but it was to short and it needed life and with meaning that s all.


  6. Nice children s bookI read this with my grandson We enjoyed the book Interesting and fun activity to do together He is 4


  7. Ever since I bought my Kindle, I have been searching through the free books to find some to read to my boys They boy are enad with Mommy s latest toy though because of the apps that I have downloaded than the books I also feel that it gives me a chance to mix it up a bit when it comes to reading to them at bedtime.They were both familiar with some of Aesop s fables, thanks to story time and random books pulled from the library shelves But they hadn t heard any of these stories involving Fox bef [...]


  8. I am a big believer in reading to my 5 year old son each night I decided to do a search for something new, something I haven t read a least 50 times to him already I stumbled across this book for free at I remembered reading some of these stories when I was younger, so I thought I would give it a shot The illustrations were very well, but there is only one pic at the beginning of each short story I had to change some of the words for my son to understand All he pretty much got from the story wa [...]


  9. I happen to like Aesop s fables and the implied lessons as well as the creativity in old story telling Perhaps I expected too much from this book I was looking for something to new to read to my kids and came across this one in the Kindle library There were four stories in all with a single cute picture at the beginning of each one All of these the stories were about a fox and it s interactions with other creatures crow, goat, grapes, cat Each story would be about one page in a printed version.F [...]


  10. I enjoyed the fox s stories and the lessons behind them They weren t happy stories and the ending would probably be frowned upon by parents who don t want their children exposed to death by unnatural causes The fox was eaten in the end, after cuckholding the other animals These were real life applications told in a way that all, even children can understand with the help of an adult explaining it to them My boys, who are 6 8 listened and asked questions It brought about conversation that told wh [...]


  11. What the Fox Learnt is a good example of modern day fables In each of the four short story s the fox is confronted by a situation he attempts to over come using one of his many tricks Taking advantage of, and dispensing advice to, otherwise trusting animals.Following cute pictures of the different animals will be fun for the kids and should keep their attention through each of the short story s The lessons may be a bit complicated for young readers to understand but are the kind that leave a las [...]


  12. This was an interesting set out of Aesop fables containing the wily fox and the morals that he can bring to us from the ancient times of these valuable stories They are richly decorated with simplistic artwork that will catch the eye and the reading is simple, short and quick.The only thing I can find fault with on this is the way the stories ended It may have also been interesting to have added a few foxy fables to the list than just the four that were chosen Otherwise it was a good collectio [...]

  14. I enjoy Aesop, and the classic tale of the fox and the grapes is my all time favorite fable However, this is a rather unprofessional presentation which doesn t really seem to know its audience, jumping between cutesy picture book text to difficult words and concepts The illustrations, however, were of a higher quality than many e books.


  15. This is a short collection of fables with different stories dealing with the main character, the Fox Fox and the Grapes, Fox and the Goat, Fox and the Crow, Fox and the Cat The Fox goes through each story and learns something in the end, morals I would use this book to teach fables and morals of the story.


  16. It s not as good as I thought it would beIt s not as good as I thought it would beit didn t tell you much what was going on in the middle of the story.I m was surprised it I thought it was going to be good


  17. its mainly about a fox doing thingsI choose this rating because it was funny.I like the part where he tells the goat why dont you come down in the well also.I dont like the part where the fox gets killed.I would recommend this book to anyone actually for bigger kids it would be for fun,and little ones for school or out of school


  18. Great four stories for little children My favorite one was The Fox and the Cat in which Fox is considering too many options to escape from the hounds and therefore fail to escape at all, paying for that the highest price he could Very memorable quote from this story that I m sure I ll be remember for a long time Better one safe way than a hundred on which you cannot reckon.


  19. Klasick Ezopovy bajky jako ebook s obr zky Hned prvn je o li ce, vr n a s ru, tak jsem si hned vzpomn la na d tstv , kdy jsme s babi kou chod valy skoro denn kolem potravin, kde m li za oknem plak t s vr nou, kter poj d s r Babi ka mi pak v dycky pov dala jako poh dku tuhle bajku.


  20. Ratings I thought this book was great for my little sister I give this book a three star rating because I thought it had very little story s to tell But I didn t like the little quotes at the end of each story.


  21. Having read the originals I was hoping the illustrations would provide a new lease on this old classic but there are barely any illustrations one per fable I expected much and didn t see how these in any way really added to the fables.


  22. My son was able to read this.My son was able to read this.I got this for my son so he could do his first book reports on the stories It was easy for him to read even with the words he need help with.


  23. It s a really small collection of some of Aesop s fables centered around the fox The lessons you could learn are really good assuming you learn them early in life Definitely a good read for children.


  24. The lessons in this book were interesting and I didn t know these were Aeosp fairytales until now so this is why I am assuming they were so dark Overall, these stories gave odd lessons but they were interesting reads.


  25. This is like the cliff note version of the Aseops tales Each story jumps to the end of the classic tales slapping on the moral at the end Overall it was disappointing, however I did give it a second star because the illustrations and formatting is great for a Kindle book.


  26. Chunks of plot missingWhy publish a book and not have all the pages there Trying to read this, when we got to the story about the fox and the cat, there s a large chunk of plot missing.


  27. This is a terrible book This is a terrible book which aims to teach children lessons I would rather my child be cautiously kind than jaded and suspicious of the world.


  28. Great short stories my grand daughter reallyt enjoed this book at bedtimrrAwwsonw book we liked how Short the stories were great for bed time reading lots or meaning and lessons
