The Hare and the Frogs
(The Bodley Head, 1978)
This booklet takes the hare through a number of attempted escapes from danger. He runs from the storm, a deer, a bird, a hedgehog (an army of swords and daggers, the hare cries), a bull, a ram, a fox, a hyena, a rooster, ...
(Hillside Press, 1974)
A nicely executed miniature, with some pen markings on the title page and elsewhere. Eight fables, each with an illustration. And Aesop is illustrated in the frontispiece. The illustrations are more original than ...
Die Fabels van Aesopus
(H.J.W. Becht, 1975)
This seems to be a Dutch version of The Fables of Aesop: 143 Moral Tales Retold. Lively art. As I mention in the account of the American book, the best of the illustrations are for WC (22-3) and MM (34-5). There is a ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
Good pop-ups, some of which even incorporate a bit of action, for example when the hare rises up tired or when the race-finishing judge waves the checkered flag. See my near-identical Spanish version under 1979.
Aesop's Fables in Song
(Shawnee Press, 1973)
For solo or unison voices with piano and guitar (or Autoharp). Piano accopaniments by Lou Hayward. I had found Mysels' record, produced in 1975, several years ago, done by the same press. As there are twenty-four songs ...
Fables for Little People
(Young World Productions, 1972)
Here are twenty fables, each with two facing pages, in a 44-page booklet for children. There is a T of C at the front. The versions are careful, and the illustrations playful and charming. In LM, the lion is only tied ...
(Editorial AtlantidaEditorial Atlántida, 1972)
Simplicity and straightforwardness mark the versions and the two-color art in this kids' book.
Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Compare this edition with the Uni-Phone Language Institute edition from Korea of 1982. This edition takes the same nine fables and their illustrations but adds color to the latter. See my notes there. Aesop never stands still!
More Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1974)
The sequel to the earlier Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Just a wonderful book! Almost every story and illustration could be well used in a lecture. My favorite is The Cat and Venus. There is real wit in the ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
