19 fables de singes
(Castor Poche Flammarion, 1992)
I had already had a larger and thinner copy of this paperback book with a 1998 copyright. I figured that this was simply an earlier version. Upon closer inspection, I find that the texts are the same, but that the same ...
Classics For Young Readers, Volume 2
K12 is an organized approach to home-schooling. Here is, I believe, the first of their works that I have encountered. It is a large-format, substantial collection of pieces, perhaps for second-graders. A nice picture ...
The Golden Book of Storytime Tales
(Golden Press, 1962)
Among some forty stories offered in this well-used large-format book are several fables: The Wonderful Tar-Baby adapted from the original story by Joel Chandler Harris; GA (60); BC (89); and FG (147). FG has a strong ...
The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales.
I am delighted to see that this great book is now out in paperback. I will repeat here my comments from the hardbound edition. Great fun! Its LC summary is apt: Madcap revisions of familiar fairy tales. The book dares ...
Wie das Kamel seinen Buckel bekam: Vorlesegeschichten von Boccaccio bis Biermann
(Verlag Neues Leben, 1991)
This book is a pleasant, creative surprise. It contains all sorts of stories for parents to read to children. That there are fifty-three seems no accident: one a week can take a listener through a whole year. After Liest ...

(Otto Maier Verlag, 1972)
This is an expanded edition of a book that appeared first from the Georg Bitter Verlag, Recklinghausen, under the title Ein Fuchs fährt nach America. This simple paperback collection identifies its one hundred fables by ...
El libro de las fábulas
(Combel Editorial, 2010)
This book represents an important contribution, I believe, to the fable tradition. Generally, each fable takes two pages, and generally there are two images for each. Urberuaga's style, which seems to me similar to that ...
Faules I Moralitats
(Editorial Balmes, 1959)
Much about this book will remain a mystery to me, I suspect. It seems to be a collection of twenty-five fables in Catalan verse. A first surprise to me is that it has both an imprimatur and a nihil obstat. Generally, ...
Lehren der Weisheit und Tugend in auserlesenen Fabeln, Erzählungen und Liedern: Ein Buch für die Jugend
(In der J.J. Mäcken'schen Buchhandlung, 1817)
Someone must have found some very useful material in this book, since it went through ten editions! It is organized into three major sections. The first has five subsections: Activity and Industriousness; Moderation and ...
My Book of Fairy Tales and Fables
(Brown Watson, 1978?)
Identical with a softbound version with ID #606 that is printed in Czechoslovakia, while this edition is printed in Romania. Wonders never cease! See my comments there
