Praise for Told and Retold: Around the World with Aesop's Fables:

"The stories are short and sweet, but better than the neat retellings are the beautiful block-print illustrations...Gorgeously crafted wordless pages between subsets of stories give readers a chance to pause and reflect...A vivid, charming take on these beloved fables." Kirkus
