#bookreview: 50 Famous Fables and Folk Tales

50 Famous Fables and Folk Tales: Collected from Around the World50 Famous Fables and Folk Tales: Collected from Around the World by Tom Baker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

50 Famous Fables and Folk Tales turned out to be a much shorter read than I expected it to be.

Some of the fables are truly familiar - especially those from Aesop - but others proved to be new and amusing reads. I especially liked the African and Indian folktales/fables. The illustrations also add a nice touch.

Each story ends with a little moral, some of which were interesting to read. Others were a little strangely written. There were also a few annoying author asides (which I assume come from Baker).

Altogether quite amusing, though probably best for younger readers.

Note: I received a digital ARC of this book for review via Edelweiss.
