Beloved by generations of children and adults, AESOP’S FABLES continue to be a source of pleasure and learning for millions around the world. Animalistic morality tales, short in nature, help young minds to learn many of the rules and manners of our society.  The tales have been translated, interpreted and presented in myriad ways over the years. Over the past few years, Anthony Richardson has been putting his own spin on the tales in the Ginx TV show THE FIRST HOUR.  Now, Spokenworld Audio are proud to present Anthony reading a collection of Aesop’s Fables in audio for the very first time.

Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order.  Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices).  So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:

[1] Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.

[2] Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.

We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!
