Aesop's Fables for Modern Readers
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)

My Big FunThinker Book of Fun with Fables.
(Educational Insights, 1983)
An activities book to accompany the tape and Ten Best-Loved Aesop's Fables (1983). Color, connect the dots, escape the maze, color by numbers, and find the hidden pictures. The art is simple.
The Ant and the Grasshopper
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1991)
This is a full-sized 16-page pamphlet. The illustrations are double-page spreads with simple lines, like The Ant worked. The grasshopper didn't (3). Pages 4-5 show delight in the multi-limbed character of both insects. ...

(Brun Agus O Nuallain, TeorBrún agus Ó Nualláin, 1920)
Some ninety-four fables in this book of 138 pages with a bright red cloth cover showing BW in white. There are delightful little black-and-white illustrations, like that for the battling frog and mouse on 35; one hardly ...
Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn Cnuasach A II

Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(P. F. Collier & Son Company, 1909)
An unspectacular selection of Joseph Jacobs' Aesopic fables claims the first 35 pages or so of this collection. It is, as far as I can see, valuable only as testimony to Aesop's popularity. No illustrations. T of C at ...
Fabulas de Esopo
(Ediciones CoquitoIberia S.A., 1981)
This book of 126 pages has four parts, clearly marked out in the T of C at the end. It may be in the same series as my 1989 Fabulas de Samaniego from Susaeta by way of Suromax. I have long been a fan of Mordillo's ...

The back cover of this children's booklet advertises sixteen books in a series whose title is too long to fit into my database categories: Famous Tales of Andersen, Grimm, etc.: Children's Fairy Tales. This is T16 in that ...
The Fox and the Stork
(John F. Shaw & CompanyJohn F. Shaw & Co. Ltd.,, 1920)
