Les Fables de La Fontaine
(France Loisirs, 1988)
Here is something strange. The format of this book is exactly like that of a book published in 1992 by Grasset Jeunesse, 50 Fables de La Fontaine. It also has a preface--but a different one--by Marc Soriano. This volume ...
La Fontaine: L'Âne et le Roi
(Dessain et TolraDessaom et Tolra, 1982)
This is a whimsical book of 80 pages, about 8½ x 10. With colored illustrations of a donkey-king and a vulture (?) on its front cover and of a frog on its back cover, it has two-color art inside. From my understanding ...
Lafonten' den Masallar
(Nil Yayınevinil yayinevi cocuk kitaplari, 1982)
This children's booklet contains forty-eight pages of fables with five faint full-page black-and-white illustrations. The best of these (6) is similar to the colored picture of FC on the front cover.
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions G.P., 1981)
I like this book. Its paintings for kids have an exuberant (sometimes even overexuberant) quality; they are alive with color and action. Cute mice act out comments, e.g., holding their ears near the frog about to explode. ...

(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1981)
Eleven witty prose fables freely retold to capture the irreverent fun of the original verses. The broken turtle after the fall is a visual delight. There are frequent little animal spectators. I enjoy this art. The ...
La Fontaine Masallari: Fransiz Masallari
(Inkilap ve Akaİnkilâp ve Aka Kitabevleri, 1981)
This 96-page paperback book is virtually identical with a copy I received as a gift from Greg Schissel five years earlier. The differences I note are two. There is no pre-title page here with a monkey illustration. And ...
La Fontaine Fables, and Other Poems
(Colin Smythe, 1982)
Thirteen good translations of LaFontaine make up some forty of the 140 pages here. The fables and other translations from French, Italian, Spanish, and German are presented bilingually, with the original and the translation ...
A Hundred Fables of La Fontaine
(Park South Books, 1988)
Identical with the Hampstead edition of the same title (1988). It looks from the advertisements and the absolute identity of the books as though Park South is the New York branch of whoever is behind Hampstead Editions. ...

This is a 32-page pamphlet containing four fables, each with a simple black-and-white drawing. FC is on the cover. The four fables here are FC, GA, The Lion and the Donkey, and (perhaps) The Stag Seeing Himself in the Water.
