Aesop's Fables in Verse
(Paul Cave Publications Ltd., 1985)
Here are twenty-four lively verse retellings of familiar Aesopic fables, each on an unnumbered left-hand page. On the right pages are corresponding full-page colored illustrations. The paper used here is about as slick ...
(Easton Press, 1985)
This book seems identical, except for the publisher and the binding, with the 1985 Holt original. If anything, the illustrations here are even sharper than they are there. There is a ribbon to help you remember your place.
The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables.
(Marshall Cavendish Ltd., 1985)
The illustrations are delightful, witty, colorful, and alive. The best may be for SW, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, and The Lion and the Peacock. The book and the tape work together well verbatim.
(Editores Mexicanos Unidos, 1985)
Straightforward presentation of 159 of Aesop's fables with primitive but engaging dot drawings. The collection is preceded by a prologue and followed by a T of C. The book is almost a replica of the same publisher's ...
(Holt Rinehart, and Winston,, 1985)

(Star Rover House, 1985)
A strange book combining typed text and crude two-colored illustrations. The best pictures are those of the dog and sow (5) and of the camel looking in the mirror (35). The text of The Cat and the Rats catches the ...
(Watermill Press, 1985)
The urge to put out cheap editions of Aesop continues! The versions here seem to be bent toward good story-telling. Are they taken from some earlier edition?
Kettu ja Haikara: Aisopoksen satuia
(WSOYWerner Söderström Osakeyhtiö, 1985)
This book replicates in Finnish the English book Aesop: The Fox and the Stork (1985) from Pelham in London. See my comments there. As in the English, there are twenty fables. Each gets a two-page spread with a full-page ...
Aesop's Fables, Volume I
(Trillium Press, 1985)
This fine four-volume series comprises good activities for school children based on fables (eleven per volume) well chosen for their human lessons. Almost every story has a good question labelled Something to think ...
Aesop's Fables, Volume IV
(Trillium Press, 1985)
This volume includes Noah at its end and the funny and unusual Momus fable. Asked to look at the original creations (man, house, and ox), Momus found fault with everything by saying Too bad it doesn't have... He was ...
