A Novel Journal: Aesop's Fables
(Peter Norton: Printers Row Publishing Group, 2016)
"Here is a first! This is indeed a journal for writing one's thoughts and experiences. The tiny lines in the journal are Aesop's fables. As an advertising slip proclaims, "The journal lines are the novel (in teeny, tiny ...
Animal Fables from Aesop
(David R. Godine, 2000)
Here is a fine paperback version of the original 1991 hardbound version, also done by Godine. Let me repeat my comments there, except to say that I had complained about the hardback cost. Now the paperback cost is less ...
Aesop's Fables: The Ant and the Grasshopper
(Bright Sparks Parragon,Parragon: The Complete Works, 2001)
GA is told here in traditional fashion and is illustrated with lively cartoon characters including Bee, Ladybug, and Spider. When we meet Ant, she is struggling to balance a number of grains on her back. Grasshopper ...
(Lothrop Publishing Company, 1901?)
I am very happy to get a copy of Rundell's version, quoted by Hobbs on 102. The Griset illustrations are well done here. Still, this book's special offering lies in the four full-color illustrations. These often render ...

(McLoughlin Brothers Publishers, 1880)
A favorite. The miller and his son shoulder the ass. Six pages of square colored pictures; some colors miss slightly. The verse text (British?) is sometimes at odds with the (American) illustrations, as when the mice ...
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
Peter Pauper Press has used virtually the same translation for three different editions. Bewick's is also dated 1941. Carle's adds two later copyright dates. The Bewick translation is the fullest, to judge from The ...
Professor Aesop's The Crow and the Pitcher
(Tricycle Press, 2003)
Here is a delightful, eclectic problem-solving approach to the time honored fable of CP. One pair of pages about ten pages into the work will give a sample idea. The point is well stated in the few words of text: After ...
A Sample of Aesop

The introduction to this twelve-page booklet offers the touching story of a very poor family in the 1920's, when mother Helen and son Rex collaborated on a book of two fables. Here, sixty years later, the booklet sees the ...
