Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks: 

I LOVE this book! It is fabulous!!! Being a former teacher I could see many ways to use this book in the classroom. I really hope there are teachers (especially Middle and High School teachers) out there reading this review. Please pass it along to any you know!


This book reminds me of a Classic you would read in school. It’s a timeless book with so many themes to be discussed. There are so many assignments and wonderful book discussions that come out of reading this book. 


It is the story of Aesop. Yes, the same man that wrote all those wonderful fables you know of from growing up. It’s such an interesting read about how his life might have been, and how he might have created these fables long ago. It’s a very hard book to put down.

Some themes that ran through this book that could be discussed are:



Mentally Strong vs. Physically Strong
Freedom vs. Slavery
Make Your Destiny vs. Allow External Events to Dictate Your Path
Optimism vs. Pessimism
War of Ideas vs. War of Swords (classic Greek paradigm diplomacy vs. war)

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK:
1. It is easy to read, understand, and follow.
2. It takes place during Ancient Greek times.
3. It is a nice read of only 180 pages (another great reason to choose this for students).
4.
Helps you to understand the times and how fables may have come to be.
5. Has a romantic aspect to the book as well.
6. Really makes you connect and care about the characters.

7. Great read for ANYONE!!!
8. Lastly, it also has received all positive reviews, so it helps to know
others enjoyed it as much as I did!

  4. The question drives me crazy :0)..because I have been trying to remember the name of a book I loved when I was younger and wish I could figure out the name so I could read it again. It was about a boy who raised a dog they would go racoon hunting and there was one specific racoon that this boy growing up would try to catch
