Oban's Myths & Legends
What are fables?
explained by Oban
A fable is another type of story, also passed down from generation to generation and told to teach a lesson about something.
Fables are about animals that can talk and act like people, or plants or forces of nature like thunder or wind. The plants may be able to move and also talk and the natural forces cause things to happen in the story because of their strength.
The most famous fables were written by a man called Aesop. We know them as Aesop’s Fables, and he wrote more than 600 of them.
