Belling the Cat & Other Stories
(Golden Press: Western Publishing Company, 1969)
Here is a redoing of the 1960 version done by Golden Press. This book remains a Golden Beginning Reader, but Golden Press is now a Division of Western Publishing Company. The pink cover has turned to green. The first ...
Fabeln, Parabeln und Gleichnisse.
(Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, 1970)
A wonderful little treasure put together by one of the people who knows this area of literature best. This work is basically a collection of texts supplemented by a good twenty-page introduction, a bibliography, and a ...
(Platt & Munk: Grosset & Dunlap, 1970)
A soft book for kids that cheats by putting in TMCM. Both illustrations for that are good.
The World Treasury of Children's Literature.
(Little Brown,, 1984)
One of the loveliest and most comprehensive kids' books I know. Early in the first volume, eight Aesop's fables are presented and one Russian fable, The Fox and the Crane. The versions are from Jacobs and Daly. The ...
Tales, Talk, and Tomfoolery: A Collection of Folklore
(Scholastic Book Services, 1975)
A wild and varied book meant perhaps for pupils in junior high school. The book contains folktales, songs, tricks, games, crazy pictures and cartoons, and black-and-white illustrations. Besides two fables from India and ...
The How and Why Program: Story Unit
(L.J. Bullard, 1930)
Eight fables told in traditional fashion are mixed into this compact beginning story book. The illustrations are of indifferent quality; do not miss the fox and stork in the lower corner of 11.
(Golden Press, 1957)
LM gets two pages here--and two of Szasz's poorest pictures! Otherwise a sprightly book with good colored pictures.
Fun with Folktales
(Scholastic Book Services, 1972)
The last five pages of this thirty-two-page pamphlet are given to describing fables, presenting one (SW, told in the incorrect version) and recommending others for puppet shows.
The How and Why Program: Hero Unit
(L.J. Bullard Co., 1930)
Five fables told in traditional fashion are mixed into this book. Only one has an illustration: The Fox and the Goat (309).
Hesitant Wolf and Scrupulous Fox: Fables Selected from World Literature.
(Random House, 1973)
Identical with the 1983 paperback I had earlier, though from a different publisher. A wonderful collection including some surprises like John Lennon. The dozen or so categories into which the fables are gathered may be ...
