La Fontaine: The Donkey and the Little Dog, and The Cat and the Fox
(Children's Books Ltd.Litor Publishers Ltd., 1985)
This little children's book of 7 x 7½ has very simple illustrations with an emphasis on lots of bright colors. The poetry starts with a rhyme but does not have a clear scheme that I can see. The versions of the two fables ...
LaFontaine Seçme Masallar [Cover: LaFontaine'den Massallar]

About this Turkish book I will not be able to write much. Its dust jacket cover features a composite picture of animals involved in La Fontaine's fables. Inside, there is a life of La Fontaine, followed by fables without ...
La Fontaine Masallari

The Fox turned Wolf and other stories
(Ladybird Books, 1981)
There is a cute astrologer-illustration on 31. The T of C page features this sentence: This collection of La Fontaine's simple moral stories has been retold for the older reader. I wonder what LaFontaine would say to that!

Fables de la Fontaine N°2
