Text & Audio book
The audiobook has been part of a project, aiming to record all the fables in the collection, primarily meant for learners and children, meaning that the narration is slow and rather exaggerated.
Nevertheless, the used texts' collection has also not been error free and for this reason, after the 3rd set of fables, the project has been upheld.
The good news is that there's another edition found, which will serve the purpose better in the near future.
You can listen to Fable nr.6 of the 1st set, as an audio sample of the present audiobook, by clicking below.
