The Donkey in the Lion's Skin
(The Wright Group, 1986)
Number 3 in the series. Here is a quirky eBay find. I had found one other book in this set, which now includes not twelve but rather eighteen members. Biro's work is always lively, and this eight-page presentation of ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I
(Sea Island Information Group, 1989)
See my comments on the first printing of this curious paperback booklet. I thought then that it needed an editor. The good news is that it found one! A number of problems in the first printing are cleaned up in this ...
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 ...
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.
Fables of Aesop
(Choun Moon Wha SA, 1988)
Clearly related to Choun's bilingual Fables of Aesop (1980/88), even down to the book's size and cover art. Again, the first 203 of Handford's 207 fables are presented, with the same footnotes. An analysis of the footnote ...
Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University PressUni-Phone Language Institute, 1982)
A good paperback with a clever concept. Pages 1-80 fit anywhere; pages 81ff. give Korean notes and translations (and identify Uni-Phone Korea's publication date). There are nine fables with simple illustrations often set ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Choun Publishing Co.Cho¿Ưn Munhwasa, 1980)
Now here is a fascinating book. It is a new edition (with 203 fables) based on the 1979 edition (which had 130). Apparently both used S.A. Handford's Penguin texts. This book simply photocopies them (with a few inserted ...
The Lion and the Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Modern Curriculum Press, 1987)
This 9 x 5½ landscape-formatted pamphlet was a nice gift to find on the last afternoon of my thirty-day retreat. Here the female mouse runs onto the lion's nose. The artist cleverly puts the lion's ROAR! upside-down, ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables
(Kana Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1980)
This book is in the thick pages competition! The illustrations are so strong and dramatic that one needs no text! My favorite illustrations are from the bat story. The other two stories are FS and BF. This layout ...
[Korean] Sun and Wind
(Bum WooP*omusa, 1987)
A pleasing simple book of the above four fables and TB. This book seems typical of recent Korean work, for it is both colorful and vivid. The echoes are particularly good, e.g., that of the fellow diving into the ...
