The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
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 ...
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.
The Hare and the Frogs
(The Bodley Head, 1978)
This booklet takes the hare through a number of attempted escapes from danger. He runs from the storm, a deer, a bird, a hedgehog (an army of swords and daggers, the hare cries), a bull, a ram, a fox, a hyena, a rooster, ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Houghton Mifflin, 1996)
What a treasure! This sideways book is an enchanting expansion of TH, with Jones' special feature of a peep hole in the text pages between full-page illustrations. The peep hole works very effectively spotlighting elements ...
Lamb Chop's Fables: The Boat Contest, Featuring Aesop's The Lion and the Mouse.
(Time-Life Books, 1993)
Here is a copy of the second printing of this book. It seems otherwise identical with the first printing already in the collection. Part of a set (for $39.95) including a Lamb Chop puppet, wrapping paper, greeting card, ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Old Man and Death.
(The Good Book Press, 1986)
A beautifully made little book that tells this Aesopic story very well. The size seems to me to work against the two cuts. There is an exquisite design of hatchet and wood on the cover. For other work by Peter and Donna ...
Le meunier, son fils, et l'ane
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1962)
Identical and simultaneous with The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey from the same artist and publisher. Here is a book whose existence I never suspected!
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Society for Visual Education, 1980)
Nice simple big pictures, one to a page. The boy ends up telling himself the moral. Maybe the last page, without borders or print, is the most expressive: the men look up to the hills and do nothing.
The Sick Lion
(The Wright Group, 1990)
Another nicely conceived work by Biro. Sixteen pages. This -- #16 -- is the only copy I have from the latest series, 13-18. The tired lion here wears a sport jacket, vest, and tie. Deciding to look sick, he puts on ...
