Ten Best-Loved Aesop's Fables
(Educational Insights, 1983)
For use with an excellent tape. The stories are well told, each with one simple colored picture. There are many changes from traditional stories: How can the crow hold an apple in his beak and eat it at the same time? ...
(Picture Book Studio, 1989)
Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. The best illustration features the camel dancing and the animals laughing. Other good illustrations ...
Fábulas Clásicas: Selección de Fábulas de Esopo.
(Editorial Everest, 1981)
An impressive book with dramatic pictures. The best of them may be of the deer caught in the tree. Despite their strong first impression, the pictures do not hold me.
(Holt Rinehart, and Winston,, 1985)
Hague did Wind in the Willows, and he follows the same style here. It is engaging, but unfortunately most of the illustrations come out quite dark. The style is distinctive, and the human costumes charming; still, I do ...
Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables
(Gallery BooksSmith Publishers, 1986)
One of the best renditions I have seen lately. The pictures are excellent, well produced, and witty. Some stories besides SW miss, as when the dolphin does not use a proper name with the monkey. Some are softened: the ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse and Two More Mouse Tales from Aesop.
(Scholastic Inc., 1987)
This is a charming booklet, especially the lead story, in which the two best paintings are those of the upturned nose and the conference inside the city mouse's hole with the dogs visible outside. The last picture and ...
(Unicorn Publishing House, 1988)
Great pictures, though they may tend to the romantic and even sentimental. The best for me are the first two, of the lost wig and of the frogs at the well's edge. Are they done with acrylics?
Favorite Fables in Our Lives: Aesop's Fables and Original Application Stories
(Dormac Inc.,, 1989)
This paperback book of some 98 pages builds off of a 1982 effort by the same authors, Fables by Aesop. That was a large-format (8½ x 11) classroom book of 65 pages that matched each of ten Aesopic fables with an application ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1987)
This 1987 paperback printing seems identical with the 1981 paperback printing. 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 ...
Les Fables d'Esope Phrygien Illustrées de Discours Moraux, Philosophiques, et Politiques
(Chez François Foppens/Chez Jean de Bonnot, 1988)
If there were a single original behind this book, it would fit between Bodemann #67.2 by Jean du Bray (1659) and #67.3 by Foppens (1682). Bonnot's introduction speaks of taking up the translation of Baudoin and Boissat ...
