About Aesop's Fables:
Aesop was a storyteller and slave who lived 2,500 years ago in ancient Greece. Because of his humble position in society, Aesop could not speak his thoughts openly. So he told fables, metaphorical stories in which animals speak and act like people. Aesop could not speak out, but in his fables, the animals could talk and poignantly comment on human society. To this day, Aesop's fables are retold by storytellers the world over. This lively collection of nineteen miniature, metaphorical tales is sung and told accompanied by guitar, cello, electric bass, and vocal harmonies.

"Delightful entertainment for the entire family."

Milwaukee Journal:
"Heather Forest has an incredible emotive voice-- mesmerizing when it's low and breathy, compelling when it's clear and strong."
