The Tiger, the Brâhman, and the Jackal
(Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, 1963)
Here is a second copy of this book. A large-format hardbound book which presents Steel's strong telling well. (Tales of the Punjab is represented in this collection under 1894/1983). The version of this tale is effective ...
The Lion and the Rat: A Fable by La Fontaine.
(Franklin Watts, 1963)
This is an extra copy missing the first title-page from the same source for the same price. Here is another case where I got a backup copy only to discover that I had only the paperback (1963/86). See my comments there.
The Tortoise and the Hare (Storytoon)
(Rand McNally, 1962)
Here is an extra copy. 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
Here is an extra copy of Copy C. A typical small kids' book version. It concentrates nicely on the city mouse's upturned nose at one kind of food after another. And then there is a succession of intruders: the cook, ...
Once a Mouse...
(Charles Scribner's Sons, 1961)
The illustrations and the text are scaled down in this paperbound version. One can also notice a distinctly different tonality in the colors here. This version tells the classic tale well, with lively two-color and ...
The Grasshopper and the Ants
(Walt Disney ProductionsWestern Publishing Company, 1968)
This little booklet is identical, except for a few changes, with that published by Western for Disney in the same year. Western is mentioned only as printing the booklet. The other changes all have to do with the presence ...
La Liebre y la Tortuga
(Ediciones Boga, 1966)
There are red and black two-color illustrations in this twelve-page booklet. I cannot find much more to say about it!
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 ...
(Houghton Mifflin, 1969)
Here is a second copy of this book. This delightful book has fun with its story. Among its nicest features: the donkey's repeated formulaic silence; the visual presentation of the mayor's wife; and the non-laughter of ...
John J. Plenty and Fiddler Dan
(J.B. Lippincott, 1963)
Here is an extra copy in less good condition than the two in the collection. Like one of them, it has a Lippencott Lifetime Binding. Found after several years of looking. The poetry and story are both excellent. John's ...
