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 ...
Le meunier, son fils, et l'ane
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1962)
Identical and simultaneous with The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey from the same artist and publisher. Here is a book whose existence I never suspected!
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 Wind and the Sun
(North-South Books, 1992)
Very pleasing art to present a cogent story. Among the best illustrations is the first for the wind's storm. The sun itself announces the moral in proclaiming victory over the wind: As you can see, it is easier to ...
Lamb Chop's Fables: The Boat Contest, Featuring Aesop's The Lion and the Mouse.
(Time-Life Books, 1993)
Here is a copy of the second printing of this book. It seems otherwise identical with the first printing already in the collection. Part of a set (for $39.95) including a Lamb Chop puppet, wrapping paper, greeting card, ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Golden Press, 1950)
The delightful story of Prudence and Flash. Much is added: the names, a provocation, character descriptions, fans on both sides, a description of the night before, the goal, and some activities along the way. Apparently ...
The Lion and the Mouse.
(Ernest Benn, 1979)
Delightful single-frame pictures. I would love to use one or two of them if I get a chance to present the story. This book presents a different moral from most for this fable: a change in circumstance makes the strong ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.
(Troll Associates, 1979)
Cute but simple figures. Many of the drawings lack color and definition.
The Grasshopper and the Ants (Japanese)
(Gakush¿± Kenky¿±sha, 1982)
Fascinating comparisons of this Japanese version with the English-language version listed previously begin with the color of the covers. The inside front cover of this version has small reproductions of Grandville and ...
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
