Five favorite fables, retold by veteran storyteller Rand Whipple. These versions of Aesop's stories have a modern twist and a unique sense of humor. Includes "The Milkmaid and her Pail", "The Wind and the Sun", "The Crab and its Mother", "The Monkey and its Shadow", and "The Fox and the Crow".

Our children listen to audio books while we travel and they really liked this book. This is a good addition to our collection. We especially think the narrator does a good job telling the stories.
Our kids liked the milkmaid who keeps getting her words wrong.
Yes, I bought this book because we had listened to Jack, The Beanstalk and Other Stories on a trip. We were surprised because the narrator sounds southern in that book but isn't in this one. Both books made us laugh. They were different but both fun.
Yes. We wished there were more stories to listen to since we were traveling.
The author (who is also the narrator) does a good job of expanding the fables into full stories. Each one lasts a few minutes. He also gives the stories a sense of humor that adults enjoy. We liked listening to both of his books as a family.
Not really sure who would enjoy it more...
We were just really disappointed by the modern twist. In reflection we want our children to learn the classics - as classics, as opposed to having a modern twist.
Anything related to modern times...
Rand has a great voice and I am certain he would captivate our children's attention, just wish it was true to original content.
