Fábulas Clásicas: Selección de Fábulas de Esopo.
(Editorial Everest, 1981)
An impressive book with dramatic pictures. The best of them may be of the deer caught in the tree. Despite their strong first impression, the pictures do not hold me.
Fabulas de Esopo
(Ediciones CoquitoIberia S.A., 1981)
This book of 126 pages has four parts, clearly marked out in the T of C at the end. It may be in the same series as my 1989 Fabulas de Samaniego from Susaeta by way of Suromax. I have long been a fan of Mordillo's ...
Old Tales for New Readers: Aesop Fables
(Clarity Books, 1981)
Twenty-five fables are told in a lively, colloquial style, with a crossword puzzle facing each fable text. The booklet seems to be meant for helping people to learn English; besides the T of C and the texts with their ...
Fabeln von Aesop
(Sonderausgabe für den Gondrom Verlag[Gondrom], 1981)
Here is the German version of a pop-up book the English version of which I have, published by Brown Watson in 1975. As there, the copyright here belongs to Artia from 1975. The texts here follow that Brown Watson edition ...
El Leon y el Raton
(Troll Associates, 1981)
See my comments on the English version. I feared after bidding on this booklet that I was purchasing something I already had. Surprise! I was right, but it was in a different language.
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Troll Associates, 1981)
I have had this book for twenty-three years, but there was a new addition in this eBay advertisement: story cards for a literary center. I was curious. The book remains the same, and I will include my earlier remarks on ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Man and the Lion
(The Good Book Press, 1981)
Here is another lovely mini-book from the Good Book Press of Peter and Donna Thomas. I already have their The Old Man and Death from 1986. The present volume came along with The Miser from 1982. There are two linoleum ...
El Gallo, la Zorra y el Perro: Fábula de Esopo
(La Galera, S.A. Editorial, 1981)
Here is a bright, clean book with hard covers telling the UP story. The artist does fine work with the animals' faces here. The fox's early grins are excellent! The dog really does come in this version. There are ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
(Viking Press, 1981)
Lavish and well done. Worth looking at for any of the nine fables she does. Now see 1993 for a reduced-in-page-size paperbound version done by Penguin Puffin. It admits that the text was adapted by the editors at The ...
