    I liked the book, because every fable contains a moral teaching. The fables concern situations that everyone know and have lived so it’s a book for adults and children, because it can teach something to everybody. We represent the animals in Aesop’s fables and sometimes they are much wiser than us. The most incredible thing is that this book is very old, it was about the everyday lives of Ancient Greeks but it’s also about our lives. The bad and the good in the society have not changed at all.
