'Each tale is beautifully retold using digitally rendered ink and watercolor illustrations over pencil sketches. Stories have an easily discernable moral which centers on the negative of vices such as greed, cruelty, or wickedness. Each fable has elements of the country from which it came, adding a brief look into these lands and peoples. Pictures are an integral part of each story, beautifully drawn, and are essential in creating the mood. The storytelling style is engaging and will have young readers wanting more.'
