Aesop's Fables - A Collection of 665+ Fables

Ever read any of Aesop’s fables?  Written by the ancient Greek citizen Aesop, they usually were given to us in small paperback pocket-sized books when we were young children.  You would think that Aesop was a writer by profession.  He was not.  He was a slave and story-teller.  His most famous stories include ‘The Fox and the Grapes’, ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’, and ‘The Ant and the Grasshopper’.  And now, you can read all of his stories online... this site features 655+ fables!

Not only fables, but also includes real audio narrations, images, and for the ancient Greek historian lovers, even a timeline illustrating the most influential people of that time.  Most of Aesop’s fables were translated into English way back somewhere in the mid 1800s till late in that century, but those that have read them will surely agree that their relevance and morality will live forever.  And were you aware that the idiom “sour grapes” comes from Aesop’s fable ‘The Fox and the Grapes’?
