El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Andersen Press Ltd., 2008)
This is a bigger version of the book Ross first did in 1985. My copy comes from 1981. Not only the size, the publisher, and the place of printing have changed. But the feature character, Willy there, has now become ...
Grasshopper Green and the Meadow-Mice
(Merrimack Publishing Corporation, 1922)
This seems closest to my 1922 Algonquin edition. It is in very good condition. The illustrations come out quite clearly here. See my comments there.
(Henry Holt, 1956)
This is a pleasant transformation of TH. The race this time is to bring the most friends in a week to the old log. Hare runs around frantically making a lot of contacts. As the big day approaches, he looks forward to ...
The Miller, His Son and Their Donkey
(Distributed in the U.S. by Holt Rinehart, and Winston,North-South Books, 1984)
See my comments on the identical hardbound version. Both paperbacks are less then perfect: the Berkeley copy has a slightly bent cover, and the Worcester copy has a scuffed back cover and corners.

Andy and the Lion
(Trumpet Club, 1938)
Here is a copy of the second printing. As I mentioned of the first, this paperback edition is smaller than the Viking Penguin Puffin printed in 1989. This copy is in better condition than my copy of the first printing.
Der Müller, sein Sohn und ihr Esel: Eine Fabel des Äsop, frei nach Johann Peter Hebel
(Nord-Süd Verlag, 1984)
Here is the original after which The Miller, His Son and Their Donkey was published in English. I will repeat my comments made there, but I want to make some further comments too. I wrote then The big-format pictures are ...
Walt Disney's Da bymusen besøkte fetteren sin på landet
(Hjemmets Bokforlag, 1978)
Here is a Norwegian reproduction of Country Mouse, City Mouse, published in 1978 by Walt Disney Productions. I found it in the only used book shop I could find in Bodø, and I found it only after long searching. All the ...
The Chickadees: a contemporary fable
(Westminster Press, 1974)
I found this tale at first very engaging. Before long, however, it started to creak. The story touches on Christianity, Buddhism, drugs, and ecology. Its lesson seems to be Enjoy and be what you are. Its forty-eight ...
