The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
The Lion and the Mouse.
The same book as the edition of 1979 but with a slightly different spine and title page. The illustrations here may be a bit darker. See my comments on the original.
Fables for Little People
(Young World Productions, 1972)
Here are twenty fables, each with two facing pages, in a 44-page booklet for children. There is a T of C at the front. The versions are careful, and the illustrations playful and charming. In LM, the lion is only tied ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Rand McNally & Company, 1973)
I thought I had this book, and was wrong again! In fact, it is a copy of the much larger book of the same year from the same company. Where that book was 8 x 10¼, this little book is 4¾ x 6½. This book needs thinner ...
Aesop's Fables in Song
(Shawnee Press, 1973)
For solo or unison voices with piano and guitar (or Autoharp). Piano accopaniments by Lou Hayward. I had found Mysels' record, produced in 1975, several years ago, done by the same press. As there are twenty-four songs ...
The Wind and the Sun
A nice little book that tells the story well. De Paola's cloudy wind is especially imaginative.
Aesop's Fables for the Table: Aesop's Cookbook
(Broward Community College Association of Educational Secretaries and Office Personnel, 1979)
Here is a curiosity! This is a regular cookbook, but it has sections, and the heavier paper-stock divider at the beginning of each section has a line drawing of an animal cooking and, on its verso, the text of an Aesopic ...
Favole di animali
(AMZ Editrice, 1974)
Twenty-eight years ago I found a book by the same publisher covering fewer fables but using the same illustrations. The publishing history is not easy. That book used a subtitle Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo. Its ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Harvard Common Press, 1975)
Reprint of the original 1975 hardbound edition. This is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine approaches the fables with real wit. He plays with them. I have to watch out that I do not use too many ...
The Big Tree and the Little Bush: An Aesop Fable
(Gage Educational Publishing Ltd., 1972)
This is a 16-page pamphlet offering a well-told traditional fable with simple, pleasing cuts in four or five colors. The bush laments that it is small. It wants to be big, like the tree. The tree counsels the bush to ...
