The Tortoise & the Hare
(Worlds of Wonder, Inc, 1986)
Boy, it took a lot of illustrators to do a simple book! For use with a (lacking) cassette. The story nicely includes the details that a child would want to know, e.g., what a tortoise or hare is, what their names were, ...
The Bee and Jupiter
(Picasshaw Press, 1993)
A beautiful little treasure! A single sheet of fine paper is folded twice to create eight uncut pages, four of which are used for this fable. Besides black text there are gold images on the title page of a bee hive and ...
The Ant and the Dove: An Aesop Tale Retold.
(Childrens Press, 1989)

The Miller, His Son and Their Donkey
(Distributed in the U.S. by Holt Rinehart, and Winston,North-South Books, 1984)

The Grasshopper and the Ants (Japanese)

Fascinating comparisons of this Japanese version with the English-language version listed previously begin with the color of the covers. The inside front cover of this version has small reproductions of Grandville and ...
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
