( Yes, I have. / No, I haven’t.) - Tom, if you have read it, can you name one character from it? ( There were many animal characters.) - If you haven’t read it, what kind of story do you think this will be? ( I think it is about a man, Aesop.) - Do you know what “fable” means? ( Fable is a short story with animal characters. A fable has some message for readers.)
