The Tortoise and the Hare (Storytoon)
(Rand McNally, 1962)
Harmless, simple cartoons. The boasting hare waited in order to make the finish exciting, and the wait led to a two-minute nap that stretched on and on. The hare could never boast again.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 780(hdbd)
This hardbound version takes the first page and repeats it twice as its covers. It thus has a different cover from all the other versions. Multiple threats occur in the city house: from the cook, a trap, the cat, and ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 2912
This regular paper edition is in the best condition of the four editions I have. It drops four of the interior pages found in the other editions. Multiple threats occur in the city house: from the cook, a trap, the ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 407(cloth)

The Tiger and the Brahmin
(Rabbit Ears Productions, 1992)
A brightly colored book with dramatic illustrations. The story founds the Brahmin's dilemma well by pointing out his duty to practice charity to all things. The book has already stressed the role of duty in India and in ...
Turtle and Rabbit
See my comments on the identical hardbound version.
La Cigale et les Fourmis
This is the earlier but poorer copy of a book I found again in 2014, and so it is now the extra copy. Here is a treasure. I find it curious that in a book marked with a Disney copyright, the illustrations are done after ...
