Aesop’s Fables by Lucas Hucher is a modern retelling of some of the most famous stories told by legendary children’s story teller, Aesop. Using present day language, Hucher shares interesting, educational tales which are intended to entertain and provide wisdom for readers. In a manner synonymous to his predecessor Aesop, Lucas Hucher uses simple situations to teach important lessons that are valuable to the reader, as the wisdom imparted is not limited to those simple situations but may indeed be applied to achieve the same result, even when faced with more critical circumstances.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Aesop’s Fables. Lucas Hucher literally took me on a trip down Memory Lane as he afforded me the opportunity to reunite with some of my favourite stories from my childhood days. Aesop’s Fables was a favourite of mine and still is, and shaped me into the person I am today as it served as a guide to differentiating wrong from right and fostered good morals. Hucher’s retelling of these classic children’s stories is a perfect replication of Aesop’s Fables; Aesop couldn’t have told it any better himself. Hucher has not only resurrected these timeless stories and brought them to the fore so that today’s young minds can feed upon the positive mental nutrients that fed former generations, but he has carved himself into the hearts of children who will read these stories and will grow to appreciate them as I did. I admired Aesop; however, today’s children can admire both Aesop and Lucas Hucher.
