Charles Santore is best known for his lush, narrative illustrations of children’s classics. When he set out to illustrate a selection of Aesop’s fables, he chose those featuring animals rather than people. The animal kingdom, with its huge variety of characters, provides perfect examples of what it means to be human. The wily fox, the stubborn goat, the wise mouse, and all the other animals, in their own ways, represent the different parts of who we are. This colouring book presents black-and-white drawings that Santore made in preparation for his watercolour illustrations for Aesop’s Fables. The full-colour illustrations are reproduced on the inside of the front and back covers.
