Great Tales of Old
(Lantern Books, 1988)
The introduction expresses pride at bringing together Aesop, Grimm, Anderson and fairytales from England and from around the world. Forty-two fables in forty pages, all following V.S. Vernon Jones and using Rackham's art. ...
First Bedtime Stories
(Gallery Books, 1991)
Short tales, suitable in size and theme for bedtime, e.g., One at a Time (44). It is curious to see which Aesopic fables are chosen for this genre. The three Aesopic fables are SW (6, with a bet over who can make the man ...
Chansons, Poésies et Jeux Français pour les Enfants Americains.
(William R. Jenkins, 1896)
Pages 46-7 present a fuller musical version of Autrefois le Rat de Ville than one finds, for example, in Chansons de France pour les Petits Francais (1870?), where verses after the first are given in prose. Note the slight ...
More Stories to Solve
(Greenwillow Books, 1990)
Another delight, including a last bonus conundrum. Aesop is represented here in #8 by a folktale from his life: King Nactanabo of Egypt challenges Aesop to come up with something he has never seen or heard before. If ...

Diecisiete Fábulas del Zorro.
(Editorial Norma, 1990)
A very nice pocket edition heavy on Roman de Renart material but including entries from Persia, Spain, Africa, and Turkey. The one Aesopic fable is FG, well told. Enjoyable modern drawings.
Short Plays for the Classroom-Primary
(Educational Insights, 1982)
Seven good Aesopic plays among nineteen. BW has three men approach individually; for the first time in my experience of Aesop, they relent and give the boy another chance! TMCM is Horatian. TH works with moving scenery ...
The Bookshelf for Boys and Girls: II
(Editorial Board of the University Society, 1927)
This book follows upon Volume I of the same year, but seems in cover and format to belong to an earlier generation of the book. Its fable section takes over the section in Volume III of The Home University Bookshelf (1927, ...
