Book About:

The stories that tell their tales through personification of animals are as ancient as the art of storytelling itself. An art best presented in the Old Persian stories of Kelileh and Demneh. The animals represent our hidden selves in a bold way and the story tells us all about our society and how the strong rule with tyranny and the weak react in vanity, optimism, fearfulness, and flattery. But when you put all that in a children’s book with a writer this funny and smart, you can’t help but keep reading and laughing!
