What's Fables About

Publisher Summary

Winner of the Caldecott Medal

A pig flying through marshmallow clouds? A camel pirouetting through the desert? Where else could a reader find such marvelous things but in a fable? From the author-illustrator behind beloved Frog and Toad, Arnold Lobel, comes a collection of humorous, silly fables that will delight readers young and old.

“The most remarkable of the author-illustrator’s 60-plus bestselling award winners.” —Publishers Weekly

“There is enough cheerful nonsense in Mr. Lobel’s fables to endear any child listener.” —The New York Times

“Lobel has come up with a magical addition to an ancient genre of storytelling.” —Newsweek
