The Donkey in the Lion's Skin
(The Wright Group, 1986)
Number 3 in the series. Here is a quirky eBay find. I had found one other book in this set, which now includes not twelve but rather eighteen members. Biro's work is always lively, and this eight-page presentation of ...
The Race of the Turtle and the Rabbit, with five 3 dimensional spring-ups
(Artcraft Paper Products, 1950)
This book is in the same series with Goldie the Goose (1950?) and The Lion and the Mouse Join the Circus (1950?). The turtle is Myrtle, and the Bunny is Bert. Myrtle joins Mrs. Duck in telling Bert that he should not ...
The Fox and the Monkey
This is an out-of-series booklet, a gift of Jon Lindseth, perhaps done in an earlier pilot set, but now included in Set 3: The Fox and the Monkey. It cost only 7 Baht, while all others cost 10 Baht. Its cover lacks the ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Old Man and Death.
(The Good Book Press, 1986)
A beautifully made little book that tells this Aesopic story very well. The size seems to me to work against the two cuts. There is an exquisite design of hatchet and wood on the cover. For other work by Peter and Donna ...
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Society for Visual Education, 1980)
Nice simple big pictures, one to a page. The boy ends up telling himself the moral. Maybe the last page, without borders or print, is the most expressive: the men look up to the hills and do nothing.
The Sick Lion
(The Wright Group, 1990)
Another nicely conceived work by Biro. Sixteen pages. This -- #16 -- is the only copy I have from the latest series, 13-18. The tired lion here wears a sport jacket, vest, and tie. Deciding to look sick, he puts on ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
I have been searching for this book for years. It is a lucky find on a day when I should have been flying to Tokyo! The green, yellow, and brown art is only okay. In contempt, the hare decides to have a nap. The moral ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable.
(Rand McNally, 1973)
Large and inexpensive kids' book in big format with simple and sentimental pictures. I do not see much here to use.
The Lion and the Mouse
(Rand McNally & Company, 1968)
The expanded story has some unusual twists: Mr. Lion is the father of a family, as the mouse is a mother. The lion does not sleep or threaten to eat the mouse. The lion laughs to learn that the mouse has babies. The ...
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
