El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
The Man, The Boy, and The Donkey
(Albert WhitmanScott, Foresman and Company, 1958)
By special arrangement with Albert Whitman & Company. This edition adds to my copy from the 1969 printing a pictorial cover, pictorial end-papers reproduced from facing pages at the center of the book, and a list facing ...
One Good Deed Deserves Another
(Albert Whitman & Company, 1964)
A green cloth cover has the title and images of a mother and child. As elsewhere in her Whitman books, Katherine Evans uses a crayon-like style, alternating black-and-white and colored spreads. A Hispanic family of three ...
Country Mouse, City Mouse

(DerrydaleDistributed by Crown Publishers, 1984)

El Ratón de campo y el Ratón de ciudad.
(Interediciones J.M.,, 1985)
An unusual coloring-book: a page already colored in faces one you can color. It is nice to see a story without having to read text, and there is no text here!
El Ratoncillo del Campo
(Publicaciones FHERS.A.,, 1985)
Well executed colored paintings in a book of large format. Maybe the best illustration is on the back page, where the country mouse is napping with a lemonade.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse (spiral #780)
In terms of printing, this version is identical with the hardbound #780. See my comments there. The pages of this book have a different, honeycombed kind of paper. The first page is separate from the binding, and the ...
The Deer and The Spring
(Grandreams Limited, 1986)
A harmless little booklet found in Leventis Department Store. Here the deer gets away from the dogs: I have never seen that turn of events before in this fable.
The Fox and The Billy Goat
A harmless little booklet found in Leventis Department Store. The fox lands in the well trying to seize the goat! This is a dumb goat indeed!
