Aesop's Fables Volume I
(Heirloom Traditions, 2001)
Miniature 1 x ¾. The signee on the certificates seems to be K Andes. Each volume has about 30 to 36 pages after an individual T of C. There are about twelve fables in each volume. No illustrations.
Las Mejores Fábulas: Esopo, Jean de la Fontaine, Tomás de Iriarte, Félix María de Samaniego
(Edimat Libros, S.A., 2006)
This is a serious hardbound book of some 309 pages. It contains many texts and no illustrations. The T of C at the back gives the basic organization but with one glaring error. The organization is by author. The book ...
(Reader's World, 2001)
Here is a surprising find from my last day in Manila. This 112-page hardbound edition, published in India, reproduces the twenty stories told in Learning for Life: Aesop's Fables Parts 1-4 (1999) by the same publisher, ...
The Country Mouse and the City Mouse: A Tale of Tolerance
(Reader's Digest Young Families, 2006)
Here is a twenty-page children's picture book that extends onto its back endpaper with tips for parents, including strategies, discussion questions, and activities that grow out of the story. The version of TMCM offered ...
The Hare and the Tortoise Based on a Story by Aesop
(EDC PublishingUsborne Publishing Ltd., 2007)
This is my first find in a series of -- apparently -- sixteen First Reading books by Usborne including three fables. All sixteen are pictured on the endpapers. I have ordered TMCM and GGE from the same series. This is ...
(Sterling Publishing Co., 2009)
This is a fine new book of Aesop's fables! The art is angular and detailed in the style of Lane Smith, featuring elongated figures with stiltlike limbs. Facing the beginning T of C is a quilt of thirty-six details from ...
Aesops Fabeln oder Die Weisheit der Antike
(Nymphenburger: F.A. Herbig, 2004)
This book is a later remaking of Inkiow's 1999 Aesops Fabeln from Lentz. The book seems reshaped for adults. The first chapter is retitled from Ein Wort zuvor: Wisst ihr, wer Äsop war? to Wer war Aesop? The first sentence ...
Usborne Aesop's Fables
(EDC PublishingUsborne Publishing Ltd., 2005)
A good rule of thumb for cataloguing books is to make a new entry for every book that is somehow new. Well, there is very little that is new about this book. I noticed, however, as I prepared to set it aside as an extra, ...
(SeaStar Books: North-South Books, Inc., 2000)
This large-format book starts with an insightful introduction by Pinkney (9). He mentions that he as an adult often recalls a moral without its corresponding story and vice versa. His point is that each stands effectively ...
Aesop's Fables: The Hare and the Tortoise and Other Animal Stories
(Bloomsbury Children's BooksBloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2000)
Apparently identical with a hardbound version from 1999. Eighteen fables in an oversized version for the very young. Bendall-Brunello's work is aptly described here as jaunty. It reminds me a bit of Quentin Blake. ...
