Aesop's Fables (written many hundreds of years ago) are known in most countries across the world.

We've recently created an area on the site here for these wonderful moral tales and 220 stories are now on line. One man's store of wisdom that has echoed down the years.

They are said to have been created by a slave called Aesop as long ago as the 6th Century BC - over 2500 *years* ago. Yet many of them hold just as true today as they did all that time ago.

The reading of good books is like conversation with the finest men of past centuries.- René Descartes (31/3/1596-11/2/1650)
