Mable’s Fables

Mable’s Fables Introduction

Moozie’s sister, Mable T. Bovine and friend Mr. Vic, have adapted some stories from Aesop’s Fables to feature additional commentary and lessons of kindness to others, animals, Earth and yourself by Moozie the Cow as the ambassador of kindness.

Aesop was a Greek fabulist and storyteller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop’s Fables. He lived from 620 to 564 BC. Thus most were originally told more than 2,587 years ago, though some have been added since by other people conforming to the same style.

A fable is a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral. Sometimes the lessons we remember the best are those we learn from stories.

A moral is concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness or badness of human character. A moral is also a person’s standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do.

A single PDF file containing all of the fables listed below is available for download here.

If you have a response that you would like to suggest as an interpretation of the moral or lesson for any of the fables, please email to with your message so it can be added as an alternative message from Moozie. Please include the title of the fable, your initials, your age, and your city, state/province (if any), and country. Like “Choose your own adventure” stories, these fables can become “Choose the lesson that you think is best or most appropriate.”

Also, if you want to provide a similar fable that is not yet included in the list, please submit that to the same email address with the same information previously requested.
