What a fun read-aloud! With engaging kid-friendly rhymes, Natalie Portman retells 3 classic fables in a light and witty voice. Using kid-friendly humor, these familiar stories are infused with modern twists, including gender-inclusive roles, healthy life choices, and eco-friendly living, while deftly delivering these classic and timeless values: The rewards of perseverance, the benefits of making good choices, and the comforts of simple living and true friendship. I highly recommend!

Academy Award-winning actress, director, producer, and activist Natalie Portman retells three classic fables and imbues them with wit and wisdom.

From realizing that there is no “right” way to live to respecting our planet and learning what really makes someone a winner, the messages at the heart of Natalie Portman’s Fables are modern takes on timeless life lessons.

Told with a playful, kid-friendly voice and perfectly paired with Janna Mattia’s charming artwork, Portman’s insightful retellings of The Tortoise and the Hare, The Three Little Pigs, and Country Mouse and City Mouse are ideal for reading aloud and are sure to become beloved additions to family libraries.

An instant New York Times bestseller!
