The Lion and his Breath
This lion's breath is bad from eating animals. The lamb and wolf make the standard negative and positive answers. After the smell of wolf's blood brings him to the lion, the fox escapes by claiming that a cold has robbed ...
The Naughty boys and the Frog
We would usually expect the plural in this title. In this version, a young frog steps forward before the boys can throw anything. He announces that what they are about to do may be fun for them but is not fun for the ...
The Eagle, the Wildcat and the Sow
Different: this version has the young dying one by one in nest and hole and being thrown or put out, where the wildcat eats them one by one. This booklet represents one of the cases in which the configuration of the title ...
The Lion and the Boar
The two fight over first rights to a water-hole but yield to each other when they see vultures waiting to eat the victim. United we stand, devided we fall (sic). [x]
The Cat and the Fox
This cat is blue and yellow! The fox here is just offering to show the cat one or two of his tricks when a tiger approaches. The fox can not make up his mind which of his thousand tricks, he will use to escape. The fox ...
The Foxes and the Sheep Dogs
At least in this form, this fable is new to me. The foxes lure the sheep dogs into joining them. When they finally do, the foxes turn on them and devour them. Those who cannot be trusted deserve to be treated badly.

(Ediciones La GaleralaGalera, 1973)
This version places the story outside Barcelona. The best of the illustrations is of the bunny sleeping against a tree. This rabbit napped until the turtle caught up. Then the rabbit took off to Vic and there had dinner ...
The Lion and the Mouse: An Aesop's Fable.
(Millbrook Press, 1995)
A very nice sideways book with the thickest pages I have encountered in a book in a long time. The art work is all black-and-white--perhaps charcoal? The story is told with dignity and sensitivity throughout. Some ...
The Lion and the Hare
Not only does this lion have blue cheeks, but the bunny he chases is blue too! A snail desperately moves out of the lion's way near the middle of the story. This booklet contains one of the wildest language goofs: The ...
