The Hidden Picture Book of Aesop's Fables.
(Boyds Mills PressDistributed by St. Martin's Press, 1995)
It is high time that a good hidden-picture book of the fables appear. This one is good! Thirteen well-told fables, each with a full-page illustration cleverly hiding perhaps a dozen objects. I find the art well done. ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(Bantam BooksBantam: Doubleday Dell, 1995)
This is a delightful, short, softbound version perhaps most notable for its great rendition of the mice's heads and for the elaboration of mouse-life in both places. For the former, see, e.g., the embrace of the two on ...
Aesop's Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition.
(Chronicle Books, 1990)
Chronicle has put a new cover and identical dust jacket on this printing, taken from Milo Winter's The Rose and the Butterfly. They have moved within San Francisco and given themselves, on both spine and title-page, a new ...
Agua, Agua, Agua: An Aesop's Fable
(Good Year BooksGoodYearBooks: Scott, Foresman and Company, 1994)
Level 2 in Scott, Foresman's designation means that this sturdy, colorful, squarish little book is meant for children ages three to five. The art on the sixteen pages here presents large masses of strong colors, The ...
Dimiter Inkiow erzaehlt: Die Katze laesst das Mausen nicht und andere Fabeln des Aesop
(Franz Schneider Verlag, 1991)
This book turns out to be an earlier edition of a book I have from Lentz Verlag in 1999: Aesops Fabeln. This edition is larger, includes colored art (by Thomas Buttkus) and differs slightly in its selection of fables. ...
The Lion and the Mouse: An Aesop's Fable.
(Millbrook Press, 1995)
A very nice sideways book with the thickest pages I have encountered in a book in a long time. The art work is all black-and-white--perhaps charcoal? The story is told with dignity and sensitivity throughout. Some ...
(Penguin Books, 1995)
A lovely little paperbound booklet with Rackham's TH illustration on its cover and sixty-six well-chosen fables inside.
(Tiger Books International, 1993)
This is a curious book, apparently in the category of mass produced classics made to look old and fancy. The versions of its 150 fables seem sometimes long. The illustrator is mentioned only on the cover and dust ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse And Other Aesop's Fables.
(Shooting Star Press, 1994)
This is a small book measuring just over 3 x4 . It contains three fables. From the first page on, this version of TMCM identifies the two mice as different. The town mouse complains and criticizes as soon as he arrives. ...
(Distributed by Random House Value Pub., 1995)
This edition is smaller in page-size than Santore's 1988 edition. It presents not the twenty-four fables that each received a lavish illustration there, but rather eighty-two fables. Some of these are not illustrated at ...
