[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
[Chinese] (Collection of Aesop's Ancient Stories). Volume 1.
(Sun Ya PublicationsXin ya wen hua shi ye you xian gong si, 1978)
A really delightful booklet of fables. The best of the illustrations are of the cat's party (8-9), the hanged wolf in sheep's clothing (12-13), the gnat and the bull (14-15), the one-eyed deer (16-17), and the rooster, ...
[Chinese] (Collection of Aesop's Ancient Stories). Volume 3.
(Sun Ya Publications, 1978)
Slightly less well done than Volume 1. The best illustrations here are of the man and the frozen snake (8-9), FWT (18), and OF (21).
Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1972)
What a find! The store owner said she had no Aesop except the one that her child was reading. I offered her $5; she accepted and then said she really thought it worth only a dollar! This book adds two fables to those ...
Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs.
(Young Scott Books, 1971)
First found in 1991 after years of searching! A wonderful, witty presentation combining Rees' tellings (from his earlier Fables from Aesop, 1966) and Gorey's pictures. Do not miss The Impatient Fox. There is always ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Seabury Press, 1971)
Lively and expressive watercolors for these three well-known fables: FG, FS, and FC. I like best the facial expressions in the stork story.
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
(Hallmark Editions, 1971)
Attractive. The pictures are cute, but I am not sure which I could use. The narratives are okay. The black-background frontispiece is very attractive. There are unusual colors in the TMCM illustration (4). After seeing ...
