Aesops Secret, is a riveting tale for children, that if young enough can capture your attention and excitement. However, for an older audience, this book lacks substance, it fails to provide a book to get lost in. I really wanted to like this book, but found myself constantly looking for an excuse to avoid it. I read it, only by force; which proved arduous, and cumbersome. The book lacks sufficient details, and the storyline proved weak, in the realization that the authors moves for the characters could be easily guessed from an early point in the story. This story may prove a valuable read for children looking for a beginners book, but as for me, I would do well to steer clear of any future books of this nature.
