Androcles and the Lion
(Holiday House, 1989)
A well-told big-book version that helps the story by having the cruel master shackle Androcles and by making Androcles a friend of animals before he meets the lion. The best illustration has the lion holding his paw over ...
The Wind and the Sun
(North-South Books, 1992)
Very pleasing art to present a cogent story. Among the best illustrations is the first for the wind's storm. The sun itself announces the moral in proclaiming victory over the wind: As you can see, it is easier to ...
The Race of the Turtle and the Rabbit, with five 3 dimensional spring-ups
(Artcraft Paper Products, 1950)
This book is in the same series with Goldie the Goose (1950?) and The Lion and the Mouse Join the Circus (1950?). The turtle is Myrtle, and the Bunny is Bert. Myrtle joins Mrs. Duck in telling Bert that he should not ...
The Miller, His Son and Their Donkey
(Distributed in the U.S. by Holt Rinehart, and Winston,North-South Books, 1984)
See my comments on the identical hardbound version. Both paperbacks are less then perfect: the Berkeley copy has a slightly bent cover, and the Worcester copy has a scuffed back cover and corners.
The Fox and the Monkey
This is an out-of-series booklet, a gift of Jon Lindseth, perhaps done in an earlier pilot set, but now included in Set 3: The Fox and the Monkey. It cost only 7 Baht, while all others cost 10 Baht. Its cover lacks the ...
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Society for Visual Education, 1980)
Nice simple big pictures, one to a page. The boy ends up telling himself the moral. Maybe the last page, without borders or print, is the most expressive: the men look up to the hills and do nothing.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable.
(Rand McNally, 1973)
Large and inexpensive kids' book in big format with simple and sentimental pictures. I do not see much here to use.
Wie die Maus den Loewen rettete
(Artemis Verlag, 1979)
Very well done, with beautiful detailed illustrations. A good example of contemporary work with a single fable (and in another language).
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
The Lion and the Mouse.
(Ernest Benn, 1979)
Delightful single-frame pictures. I would love to use one or two of them if I get a chance to present the story. This book presents a different moral from most for this fable: a change in circumstance makes the strong ...
