Aesop's tales involve personified animals and inanimate objects, and have simple stories and easy lessons that anyone - particularly kids - can relate to. They're fun and engaging short stories that have survived across centuries. Equipped with an acoustic guitar and an affinity for poppy vocal harmony, Heather Forest puts her own spin on a selection of the fables. She lends her folk stylings to such well-known tales as "Sour Grapes" and "A Father, a Son, and a Donkey", weaving melodies and stories with an upbeat toe-tapping quality that falls somewhere between Peter, Paul, and Mary and Raffi. Kids and parents will want to enjoy this musical audiobook together.

Heather Forest knows that the strength of a soft, gentle moral can have greater impact than one that trumpets its truth with thunder and fury. (Milwaukee Journal)
