Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura J. Brown
Aesop is a famous Greek storyteller with many stories to tell and lessons to teach. Some of the ideas in the stories Aesop tells are from his own life. He grew up rich in Athens, the finest city in the world. He felt that he was blessed, but one year learned that wealth is not always a blessing. In fact he felt as if his city was cursed by the Gods of Greece. His fine city had enemies, who lived in Sparta, another city of Greece who wanted to conquer Athens. Athens was also hit with a terrible plague that killed many people. Aesop's father was a doctor and he tried to help those who became sick during the plague, but then died of the plague himself. Aesop was deeply saddened by this, but before he had time to truly miss his father, his mother died. Aesop thought he had no hope, and faced more trouble at the hands of Spartans, but his mother's words and his father's wisdom saved his life. This story is one of happiness, tragedy, wit, and wisdom, all in one. It includes a glossary for unfamiliar words, an afterword that provides more information about ancient Greece, internet resources for more information, and a listing of all of the "Read It! Chapter Books: Historical Tales" titles. Reviewer: Laura J. Brown
