Aesop’s Fables 12 Aesop Fables Illustrated by Ayano Imai Publication Date: October 2013 Ages, 4 to 99, 11.5 x 8.5 in, 32 pages Color throughout, laminated hardcover with jacket Price: US$17.99, Can$ 19.99 ISBN: 978-988-8240-52-4

SALES POINTS ● Perennial appeal of Aesop’s moral fables ● Striking new interpretation of a classic ● Delightful, quirky illustrations by Ayano Imai, illustrator of Puss in Boots.

SYNOPSIS The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, the Tortoise and the Hare – just two of Aesop’s fables brought to dazzling new light in this exquisite edition by Ayano Imai. Together with the familiar tales an array of other intriguing stories make up a baker’s dozen from Aesop, each given a unique charm through Ayano Imai’s superb illustrations.

michael neugebauer edition michael neugebauer publ. ltd AUTHOR Sources of Aesop's life date from long after his death, and most biographical material about him is almost certainly mythical. His name was associated with a huge number of fables, most of which probably were composed not by the historical figure of Aesop but by later authors. Aesop's Fables continued to be revised and translated through the ensuing centuries, with the addition of material from other cultures.

ILLUSTRATOR Ayano Imai born in London, spent much of her youth traveling the globe with her family. From 1986 to 1990, she lived in Japan then relocated to the United States, splitting time between Connecticut and Los Angeles. After returning to Japan in 1994, she studied Japanese painting, specifically mineral pigment painting, at Musashino Art University in Tokyo. While there, she developed an interest in illustration.
