(Editorial Diana, S.A., 1952)
This is a colorfully covered book of 121 pages of fables on poor and fragile paper. About every five pages there is a full-page line-drawing in black-and-white. These line-drawings are quite straightforward. The texts ...
(Brigitte Hanf, 1956)

A small, almost-square pamphlet that Jim Ciletti was good enough to take from five non-fable mates. The grasshopper realizes his mistake before the ant has a chance to say anything! Fourteen fables and a last page on how ...
