The Fox and the Monkey
This is an out-of-series booklet, a gift of Jon Lindseth, perhaps done in an earlier pilot set, but now included in Set 3: The Fox and the Monkey. It cost only 7 Baht, while all others cost 10 Baht. Its cover lacks the ...
The Wind and the Sun
(North-South Books, 1992)
Very pleasing art to present a cogent story. Among the best illustrations is the first for the wind's storm. The sun itself announces the moral in proclaiming victory over the wind: As you can see, it is easier to ...
Lamb Chop's Fables: The Boat Contest, Featuring Aesop's The Lion and the Mouse.
(Time-Life Books, 1993)
Part of a set (for $39.95) including a Lamb Chop puppet, wrapping paper, greeting card, Lamb Chop's Sing-Along, Play-Along cassette, and Lamb Chop's Jump into the Story videotape. The LM story fits well into the situation ...
The Bee and Jupiter
(Picasshaw Press, 1993)
A beautiful little treasure! A single sheet of fine paper is folded twice to create eight uncut pages, four of which are used for this fable. Besides black text there are gold images on the title page of a bee hive and ...
Aesop's Fable: The Tortoise and the Hare
(Living BooksRandom House/Broderbund Company, 1993)
See my comments on the disc itself, basis for one of the most delightful experiences I have had in a long time. This book's right-hand pages are the twelve scenes from the story with an introductory and concluding scene ...
Feed Me! An Aesop Fable
(Bantam BooksBantam Doubleday Dell, 1992)
See The Boy Who Cried Wolf (1995) and The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse (1994) in the same series. This booklet presents The Mother Lark, Her Children, and the Farmer in lively fashion. Though the story runs longer ...
The Wind and the Sun
(Silver Press, 1995)
It is easy to like dePaola's simple work. He follows a good version of the story that has the wind dive right in even before a formal bet: 'I will show you I am stronger,' said the wind. 'I will blow the cape from that ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(Bantam BooksBantam: Doubleday Dell, 1995)
This is a delightful, short, softbound version perhaps most notable for its great rendition of the mice's heads and for the elaboration of mouse-life in both places. For the former, see, e.g., the embrace of the two on ...
The Old Man and His Donkey
(Bō̜risat ʻAksarāphiphat, 1990)
MSA. This sometimes pink, sometimes purple, sometimes orange donkey with the multi-colored and differently-colored mane seems to me to be from the flower-child generation. Otherwise the story runs along the usual paths. [x]
The Treasure in the Field
The biggest surpises in this presentation come on its last page. This moral page is accompanied not by the usual owl but by one of the boys and some wheat-plants taken from the story. The moral seems to me less strong ...
