«Baby's Own Aesop» presents the fables as one-stanza limericks, each «pictorially pointed» by Walter Crane, the noted painter and illustrator. He apprenticed to master wood-engraver, William James Linton, who furnished the draft of the book's poems for Crane to edit. «Baby's Own Aesop» is available in a beautiful facsimile edition of colored engravings from the International Children's Digital Library, with which your child can read along while listening to the recording.
