Fabulous Fables: Using Fables with Children.
(Good Year BooksScott Foresman: Harper Collins, 1991)
A very helpful book for second through fourth grades. The introduction mixes up two important things: the number of lessons and the sequence of parts in the book. There are twelve lessons. There is first an overview ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895?)
This book compares most closely with my 1896 Aesop's Fables from Donohue, Henneberry, and Company. See my comments there. This book has a strange first page with four rabbits around a cartoon of grandpa kicking a football. ...
Reynard the Fox and Other Fables
(P.F. Volland, 1925)
This book uses the illustrations of the Volland 1918 Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks (see my listing for 1918/24?) and puts them now with prose stories rather than the verse used there. Most fables also get new titles. ...
El Leon y el Ratón: Nueva versión de un cuento de Esopo.
(Childrens Press, 1988)
See the English parallel by the same publisher in 1986 and my comments there.
Two More Moral Tales
(Four Winds Press, 1974)
A delightful pair of stories in black-and-white without words, printed back-to-back and upside-down in this small-format book. Each story is about twenty pages long. Sly Fox's Folly is to sell live animals as clothing ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(George R. Lockwood, 1870?)
This book seems to be inscribed in 1873, and thus I guess at 1870 as a publication date. The book is largely identical with my three Mame editions of this book (1890, 1890/92, and 1890/1901). See my comments there, ...
Babrii Fabulae Aesopeae
(B.G. Teubner, 1880)
This Teubner text looks quite straightforward to me, with its total of 146 fables, of which the last nine are fragments. There is an Index Fabularum Lachmannianus on 64-66. What we might expect in an apparatus criticus ...
Fairy Tale Time
This large-format book with sharply detailed illustrations has six stories, of which the first, TH, is a fable. The story is well told. The illustration features a tortoise with pince-nez, a hare with sweatband and ...
Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975?)
Perhaps a better copy than the reproduction done by Book Essentials, which I have listed under the same year. See my comments there. This copy has the British price marked on the corner of the end-paper.
Zen Fables for Today: Stories Inspired by the Zen Masters
(Avon Books: Hearst Corporation, 1998)
This is a humane little book. McLean gives a good short introduction to Zen Buddhism and then offers almost 100 fine short fables. The illustrations are not very helpful, but the texts are well done. Several fables are ...
