Enjoy Aesop’s fables in a way like never before with this beautifully designed and illustrated pop-up book created by paper engineer Kees Moerbeek. Together with the exceptionally beautiful illustrations from Chris Beatrice and Bruce Whatley, Moerbeek’s paper engineering make these fables truly come alive.

Aesop was a poet and a storyteller from Greece and his fables are well known to both young and old since ancient times. In Aesop’s Fables: A Pop-Up Book of Classic Tales we find some of his best known stories such as “The Tortoise and the Hare”, “The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg”, “The Lion and the Mouse” and many more. These fables are all beautifully told and portrayed through the pop-ups and you can clearly see that each pop-up is made with great care and attention to detail.


The numerous amount of fine details, the little hidden texts, the stunning illustrated facial expressions of the animals and of course the always exciting fable stories make this book highly enjoyable for both children and adults of all ages. The Aesop’s Fables pop-up book is definitely a pop-up book that every family should have on their bookshelf.
