The Fables of Aesop
(Quality Paperback Book Club, 1995)
This is a curious little treasure. It starts with a nostalgic cover of a fox looking up at a crow, a rooster strutting among hens, and a deer looking at his reflection in the water. But what is a mouse doing under another ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Book-of-the-Month Club, 1995)

The Hidden Picture Book of Aesop's Fables.
(Boyds Mills PressDistributed by St. Martin's Press, 1995)
It is high time that a good hidden-picture book of the fables appear. This one is good! Thirteen well-told fables, each with a full-page illustration cleverly hiding perhaps a dozen objects. I find the art well done. ...

Aesop's Fables: The Hare and the Tortoise and The Travelers and the Bear
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1995)
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger ...
