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 ...
Lamb Chop's Fables: The Boat Contest, Featuring Aesop's The Lion and the Mouse.
(Time-Life Books, 1993)
Here is a copy of the second printing of this book. It seems otherwise identical with the first printing already in the collection. Part of a set (for $39.95) including a Lamb Chop puppet, wrapping paper, greeting card, ...
The Wind and the Sun
(North-South Books, 1992)
Very pleasing art to present a cogent story. Among the best illustrations is the first for the wind's storm. The sun itself announces the moral in proclaiming victory over the wind: As you can see, it is easier to ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Old Man and Death.
(The Good Book Press, 1986)
A beautifully made little book that tells this Aesopic story very well. The size seems to me to work against the two cuts. There is an exquisite design of hatchet and wood on the cover. For other work by Peter and Donna ...
The Fox and the Monkey
This is an out-of-series booklet, a gift of Jon Lindseth, perhaps done in an earlier pilot set, but now included in Set 3: The Fox and the Monkey. It cost only 7 Baht, while all others cost 10 Baht. Its cover lacks the ...
Le meunier, son fils, et l'ane
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1962)
Identical and simultaneous with The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey from the same artist and publisher. Here is a book whose existence I never suspected!
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Society for Visual Education, 1980)
Nice simple big pictures, one to a page. The boy ends up telling himself the moral. Maybe the last page, without borders or print, is the most expressive: the men look up to the hills and do nothing.
The Race of the Turtle and the Rabbit, with five 3 dimensional spring-ups
(Artcraft Paper Products, 1950)
This book is in the same series with Goldie the Goose (1950?) and The Lion and the Mouse Join the Circus (1950?). The turtle is Myrtle, and the Bunny is Bert. Myrtle joins Mrs. Duck in telling Bert that he should not ...
Feed Me! An Aesop Fable
(Bantam BooksBantam Doubleday Dell, 1992)
See The Boy Who Cried Wolf (1995) and The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse (1994) in the same series. This booklet presents The Mother Lark, Her Children, and the Farmer in lively fashion. Though the story runs longer ...
Aesop's Fable: The Tortoise and the Hare
(Living BooksRandom House/Broderbund Company, 1993)
See my comments on the disc itself, basis for one of the most delightful experiences I have had in a long time. This book's right-hand pages are the twelve scenes from the story with an introductory and concluding scene ...
