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 Wind and the Sun
A nice little book that tells the story well. De Paola's cloudy wind is especially imaginative.
The Lion and the Mouse.
The same book as the edition of 1979 but with a slightly different spine and title page. The illustrations here may be a bit darker. See my comments on the original.
The Hare and the Tortoise
Good pop-ups, some of which even incorporate a bit of action, for example when the hare rises up tired or when the race-finishing judge waves the checkered flag. See my near-identical Spanish version under 1979.
The Lion and the Mouse
Here is yet another copy of the 1980 reprinting of the 1979 original. Whereas, though, that 1980 copy has a flat-textured cover, gold coloring for The Lion in the title, and several lines of bibliographical information ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Rand McNally & Company, 1973)
I thought I had this book, and was wrong again! In fact, it is a copy of the much larger book of the same year from the same company. Where that book was 8 x 10¼, this little book is 4¾ x 6½. This book needs thinner ...
la liebre y la tortuga
(Ediciones La GaleralaGalera, 1973)
This version places the story outside Barcelona. The best of the illustrations is of the bunny sleeping against a tree. This rabbit napped until the turtle caught up. Then the rabbit took off to Vic and there had dinner ...
Wie die Maus den Loewen rettete
(Artemis Verlag, 1979)
Very well done, with beautiful detailed illustrations. A good example of contemporary work with a single fable (and in another language).
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.
(Troll Associates, 1979)
Cute but simple figures. Many of the drawings lack color and definition.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable.
(Rand McNally, 1973)
Large and inexpensive kids' book in big format with simple and sentimental pictures. I do not see much here to use.
