A grumpy old owl is awoken by a chirping grasshopper who will not stop singing. How will the owl ever get any sleep? The Owl And The Grasshopper explores vanity as the grasshopper's trust in the owl's kind words and his desire for praise and validation lead to his demise. Easy to follow, our retelling finished with “And the moral of the story is that you shouldn’t always believe flattery as there may be a hidden reason for it”. The story also features themes of arrogance and deception. Aesop's fables are a collection of ancient tales credited to the famous storyteller, Aesop who is believed to have lived in Ancient Greece during the 6th century BCE. Fables are short stories that deliver a moral lesson or practical message usually through animals or mythical creatures acting on our human experiences. These stories have influenced literature across all ages and cultures.
