Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University PressUni-Phone Language Institute, 1982)
A good paperback with a clever concept. Pages 1-80 fit anywhere; pages 81ff. give Korean notes and translations (and identify Uni-Phone Korea's publication date). There are nine fables with simple illustrations often set ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables
(Kana Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1980)
This book is in the thick pages competition! The illustrations are so strong and dramatic that one needs no text! My favorite illustrations are from the bat story. The other two stories are FS and BF. This layout ...
Fables of Aesop
(Choun Moon Wha SA, 1988)
Clearly related to Choun's bilingual Fables of Aesop (1980/88), even down to the book's size and cover art. Again, the first 203 of Handford's 207 fables are presented, with the same footnotes. An analysis of the footnote ...
Mon Grand Livre de Fables d'Ésope
(Tournesol S.A.R.L., 1989)
The original copyright on this book (1989) belongs to Susaeta in Madrid, who also printed the book. This is a large (slightly under 8½ x 11) hardbound book with delightful colored illustrations for each of its eighty ...
Kettu ja Haikara: Aisopoksen satuia
(WSOYWerner Söderström Osakeyhtiö, 1985)
This book replicates in Finnish the English book Aesop: The Fox and the Stork (1985) from Pelham in London. See my comments there. As in the English, there are twenty fables. Each gets a two-page spread with a full-page ...
Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables
(Gallery BooksSmith Publishers, 1986)
One of the best renditions I have seen lately. The pictures are excellent, well produced, and witty. Some stories besides SW miss, as when the dolphin does not use a proper name with the monkey. Some are softened: the ...
(Distributed by CrownJellyBean Press, 1988)
A really lovely, lively book. The art is big, witty, and strong. Note the triple foldout of the end of the TH race: the animals from all the fables reappear here. Also excellent: The Monkey as King (19). Santore's ...
Aesop's Fables: One-Minute Bedtime Tales.
(Ideals Publishing Corporation, 1988)
This book has a distinctive, simple, and lively art style. The milkmaid carries her pail in her hand. The best illustrations are of GGE and FG. Do not miss the moral of DS: the good things that you have are lost when ...
(Unicorn Publishing House, 1988)
Great pictures, though they may tend to the romantic and even sentimental. The best for me are the first two, of the lost wig and of the frogs at the well's edge. Are they done with acrylics?
An enjoyable book, characterized by its brightly colored end papers and picture borders. Several fables are especially well told: FC and The Little Bird and the Bat. The hare plays solitaire before falling asleep. ...
