(Reader's World, 2001)
Here is a surprising find from my last day in Manila. This 112-page hardbound edition, published in India, reproduces the twenty stories told in Learning for Life: Aesop's Fables Parts 1-4 (1999) by the same publisher, ...
Aesops Fabeln oder Die Weisheit der Antike
(Nymphenburger: F.A. Herbig, 2004)
This book is a later remaking of Inkiow's 1999 Aesops Fabeln from Lentz. The book seems reshaped for adults. The first chapter is retitled from Ein Wort zuvor: Wisst ihr, wer Äsop war? to Wer war Aesop? The first sentence ...
The Rabbit and the Turtle: Aesop's Fables Retold and Illustrated by Eric Carle
(Orchard Books: Scholastic, 2008)

Aesop's Fables for Children

(The Hayloft Press, 2001)

Aesop's Fables: The Hare and the Tortoise and Other Animal Stories
(Bloomsbury Children's BooksBloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2000)
Apparently identical with a hardbound version from 1999. Eighteen fables in an oversized version for the very young. Bendall-Brunello's work is aptly described here as jaunty. It reminds me a bit of Quentin Blake. ...
