The Fables of Aesop
This is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine approaches the fables with real wit. He plays with them. I have to watch out that I do not use too many of his illustrations. Now in 1996 I have done a ...
(ArtiaBrown Watson, 1975)
A standard, simple pop-up book with The Dog and the Rooster, LM, The Wolf and the Kid, The Raven and the Peacock, OF, and FS. I wish they also had a pop-up of the cover picture of FC.
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).
Aesop's Fables/Greek Myths/Bible Stories.
(Si-Sa-Mun-Hwa-SaSisa Munhwasa, 1978)
Ten fables with Korean footnotes, many with clever Checkup exercises at the bottom of the page. The tellings and the art are both traditional, apparently borrowed from a standard source (not Jacobs). The illustration ...
The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Avenel BooksCrown Publishing, 1973)
No index or T of C. Very small engravings, probably too small to be of use. The text may be from the eighteenth or nineteenth century, but I cannot find any attribution. A reprint of some of Bewick's art from Select ...
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.
Tales from Aesop
(Random House, 1976)
Pleasing if not inspired pictures of TH, GGE, DS, BW, OF, MSA, and CP. A soft picture book whose inside cover asks the adult to read it to its owner. Now (1986) with an accompanying tape, also from Random House. The boy ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1
(Polytechnic Education Ltd.Samnakphim Phī. Ēt., 1979)
A strange little booklet. The first nine stories are vintage Aesop, finishing with a boxed moral in English and illustrated by (xeroxed?) polychrome and monochrome work of Robert Ayton in his small Ladybird editions of ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
