(Watermill Press, 1985)
The urge to put out cheap editions of Aesop continues! The versions here seem to be bent toward good story-telling. Are they taken from some earlier edition?
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
Aesop's Fables: A Selection
(The Acorn Press, 1982)
I got very lucky as I ducked into an unlikely shop featuring mostly new books and publishers' remainders. A bookcase of older and used books included two treasures. (The other is a pamphlet from Verona by Giovanni ...
Las Mejores Fabulos de Todos los Tiempos: Esopo, Fedro, La Fontaine, Iriarte, Samaniego
(Producción Editorial Dante, S.A., 1988)
Here is a standard inexpensive paperback fable edition. I find both the title and the selections curious. The title surely claims a great deal in its phrase de Todos los Tiempos! Five fabulists cover all ages! The ...
(Picture Book Studio, 1989)
Identical except for its size (4.75 x 4.375 ) with the larger format book printed in Belgium. Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. ...
(Octopus Books, Ltd., 1980)
This book uses Pavlin and Seda's nice art work from Brown and Watson's 1975 book of the same name but replaces the earlier edition's poetry with a brand new prose text, even changing the name of the first fable from The ...
(Viking Press, 1981)
Lavish and well done. Worth looking at for any of the nine fables she does. Now see 1993 for a reduced-in-page-size paperbound version done by Penguin Puffin. It admits that the text was adapted by the editors at The ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Troll Associates, 1981)
A lively book. The two animals live together. The tortoise has great facial expressions. A great deal of time is spent before we ever get to the idea of a race. Perhaps the best illustration is the centerfold of the ...
The Lion and the Mouse
(Troll Associates, 1981)
The watercolor illustrations are enjoyable. The best may be the one in which the lion grasps the mouse. This version stretches out the story a bit.
The Exploding Frog and Other Fables from Aesop.
(Little Brown,, 1981)
A delightful book, chock full of funny illustrations. The tellings are also witty, if they do depart a bit from Aesop. I could go back to this book for many illustrations and several stories. For me this book will be a ...
