The sensitive and delicate art of Manuela Adreani, an internationally famous illustrator who manages to capture the essence of the figures with unique taste and tact, will accompany the little readers in their discovery of the delightful animals enlivening these fables. Created centuries ago by the Greek Aesop, they have become part of our universal literary patrimony. Children will be thrilled by tales of animals personifying humans, and will come to know their timeless stories, which are always accompanied by a concluding moral. The unmistakable style of the drawings, whose delicate and reassuring strokes are able to create an immediate empathy between character and reader, and the simple, modern language used to present the fables are certain to stimulate the imagination of little readers, enabling them to travel in a world of dreams!
