Aesop in California
Guess who just arrived in California? Aesop! Here among the plants, animals, and places of the Golden State, his timeless fables from ancient Greece take on a new vitality and immediacy. From blackberry-munching grizzlies to Hollywood house mice, this is a book to delight the eye, stimulate the imagination, and teach us some very important lessons.

Kirkus Reviews said of Mother Goose:
“It is an imaginative and creative reworking in text and art – a gift not only for Californians, but for others far beyond its borders…This affectionate, glowing collection will be hard to resist.”
