In this book, Ron Larson twists in rhyme both well-known and little-known fables of Aesop and Ambrose Bierce. Bierce twisted some of Aesop's fables, and now Larson returns the favor to both men. For example, perhaps "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" did so not out of boredom or an attempt to seek attention, but instead wanted to lure the townspeople away from the town "to his flock in order that his gang could loot the town almost non-stop."
Larson also provides a moral for each of his 250 fables that he hopes will both entertain and provide sound advice regarding right conduct.
