Winner of an Outstanding Book of the Year award from Independent Publisher magazine, Judith Goldhaber's SONNETS FROM AESOP recasts the renowned fables of Aesop as a lively and distinctly modern set of 100 sonnets. Classics like "The Hare and the Tortoise" and "The Fox and the Grapes" (i.e. "sour grapes") are represented, of course, but the book gives readers a chance to rediscover the wisdom and humor of such tales as "The Rabbit with Many Friends," "The Woodsman and the Serpent," and the mysterious "The Old Man and Death." Each poem is accompanied by a watercolor illustration by Gerson Goldhaber, the author's husband. "What more could Aesop have wished than to address the 21st century in these dry, whimsical sonnets complemented by a series of soft, edgy watercolors? This beautifully produced book is a rare treat"-Annie Finch.
