A fable is a story, often about animals, that points out some aspect of human behaviour and often has a moral attached to it.

Many collections of fables exist such as the Panchatantram from ancient India, Aesop's from ancient Greece, Phaedrus' from ancient Rome, La Fontaine's fables composed in France in the 17th century, and Joel Chandler Harris' African American fables, the Uncle Remus stories.
