The Dolphins, The Whales and The Gudgeon

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I used to translate these fables in Greek class, and as such one spends a lot of time analyzing the structure even more than the actual stories. In this collection, I could focus on the stories.

It is an introduction into Aesop and fables in general, so if you have already read some before, there might not be much new for you in this one. However, I did enjoy reading them. These are some very early surviving stories and still they run true, with the animals representing human characteristics.
