Fabler og Fortaellinger
(Thaning & Appel, 1955)
This single paperback volume contains both La Fontaine's fables and his Contes. The latter may predominate in more ways than one. Somewhat lascivious drawings on both covers offer that suggestion. I do, however, recognize ...
Friedrich Wolf: Fabeln
(Alfred Holz Verlag, 1957)
There are 23 fables here, ranging from a few lines to five pages in length, each with a black-and-white design. The fables are understandable, regularly humorous, and often quite pointed. The tree asks the wind with what ...

Classics Illustrated Junior, #512
(Classics IllustratedFamous Authors, 1954)
MSA takes up two pages (29-30). Unusually tight telling of the story in only eight panels. Here the donkey gets angry when people laugh. He apparently drowns. $.25.
Shoji found this (and the accompanying second grade book) for me after I left Japan. What a wonderful gift! The book is structured as are the other volumes: a T of C, thirty-five fables, and a guide for parents and ...
Shoji found this (and the accompanying third grade book) for me after I left Japan. What a wonderful gift! The book is structured as is the first volume: a T of C, thirty-one fables, and a guide for parents and teachers ...
A sturdy book appropriate for its age group. A T of C and twenty-seven fables follow full-page colored pictures of The Three Hatchets, BBB (a two page spread), and FS. There is also a guide (198-206) for parents and ...
Classics Illustrated Junior, #563
(Famous Authors, 1955)
The Boy Bathing is on 29-30. It is not a schoolteacher that helps him in this version, but a man with a horse and cart. He helps, but gets into scolding while he is preparing to throw a rope. $.15.
La Fontaine: Fables Complètes
(Éditions Athêna, 1953)
This is a nice looking edition. It may be easiest to compare and contrast it with Dandelot's other La Fontaine edition, from Panthéon in 1961. This edition uses blue for titles and black for texts. Here, as there, no ...
