The Miller, his Son, and their Ass

"Widely dispersed fable, number 721 in the Perry Index and number 1215 in the Aarne–Thompson classification systems of folklore narratives. Though it may have ancient analogues, the earliest extant version is in the work of the 13th-century Arab writer Ibn Said. There are many eastern versions of the tale and in Europe it was included in a number of Mediaeval collections. Since then it has been frequently included in collections of Aesop's Fables as well as the influential Fables of Jean de la Fontaine." Excerpted from The miller, his son and the donkey on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
