Aesop's Fables. (n.d.). Aesop's Fables. Retrieved from

Excerpt: IX presenting to the little readers tins boot of Fables, no wish is entertained to create in them a belief that there ever was a time when beasts and birds could talk. A fable is a feigned narration, designed to convey instruction. The practice of teaching in this way is of very ancient origin, and is continued to this day. Reproof thus administered has often produced the desired effect when open rebuke would have served only to offend or irritate.
