Aesop's Fables were my favourite child memoirs and are mostly stories with moral statements. 
They are often brought together and told to children to learn for the future.
This is a collection by Aesop who probably lived in 620 to 560 BC. The manuscripts were handed down from generation to generation and include lessons like: ""Beware the wolf in sheep's clothing.", "Slow and steady wins the race.", and the most famous lesson "Never trust a flatterer."

A great read and for me absolutely a recommendation for young and older people equally. I think children should atleast read:
-The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing


-The hare and the tortoise 

-Fox and the Crow

"The Pursual" is the first #book of the Nome Chronicles, written by F. F John. It is about #intrigues, #adventure, #illusions and betrayal. The novel plays in the 25th century. The Plot: Neith's world consists of 20 different nomes in which the #society is separated. This makes it difficult for her to pursue her real #love: Invier because her family is 2nd in rank and Invier’s family is on the last spot. She knows that her father will never allow a marriage between her and Invier because Invier's rank in society is so low and she hast o marry into a profitable alliance. That's why Neith talked her father into organizing a pursual which means that candidates will compete which each other in different #challenges in order to win the hand of her. The last pursual happened when Invier's late grandmother was born so it's a historical event. However Invier doesn't want to take part in the ceremony, but wants to envelope with Neith, even if they live in poverty. Despite that Neith is best friend with Bel, she can't explain her why she has to make sure that Invier has to participate even if he doesn't know it yet... And Bel also seems to have more and more secrets. Will Neith lies destroy the relationship? What are Bel's #secrets? And when more and more participants die and the resistors of the system are attacking normal citizens and nome buildings, who is responsible for this all? Great #dystopia novel with many #surprises and interesting characters. 5-Stars! #bookstagram #theselection #bachelorette #great #fantastic #recommended
