Joseph Jacobs. Illustrations by John Hejduk
The Frogs were living as happy as could be in a marshy swamp that just suited them. They went splashing about caring for nobody and nobody troubling with them. But some of them thought that this was not right, and they should have a king.
Including such fables as The Frogs Who Desired a King, The Fox and the Cat, The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, and The Hare and the Tortoise, this collection of Aesop’s Fables features 29 full-color illustrations by John Hejduk. These vibrant tempura illustrations, painted in 1947 while Hejduk was a student at The School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, beautifully complement 14 of Aesop’s timeless fables and are presented here in full-color in a hardcover edition by Rizzoli.
