Aesop's Fables (Chinese)
(Shan bian chu ban sheSunbeam Publications, 1989)
There are several curious features about this lovely paperback gift that Andreas brought back from Hong Kong. The first, of course, is that there are about ten words of English in the whole book! The second is that there ...
(The Franklin Library, 1982)
A pretty but, I would say, misguided book. The thirty or so engravings from Grandville are very well presented. The putting together of Grandville, who illustrated LaFontaine, with two translators of Aesop has its problems. ...
(Easton Press, 1985)
This book seems identical, except for the publisher and the binding, with the 1985 Holt original. If anything, the illustrations here are even sharper than they are there. There is a ribbon to help you remember your place.
Country Mouse and Town Mouse/The Monkey King
Here a hunter (a Black African) gets the monkey king. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while those on the left present text with one telling symbol. The English ...
A Donkey in Lion's Disguise/A Wolf and a Lamb/The Bear and the Travelers
The raccoon discovers the lion-clad donkey. The lamb needs time to digest. The moral works from the lamb, not the wolf: this was a bad choice. One traveler is so fat that he cannot climb the tree. Good lively cartoon ...
Fabeln, Märchen, Legenden: Holzschnitte zu Äsop, Prophet Jona, Philipp Otto Runge
(Büchergilde Gutenberg, 1988)
Here is a West German edition of a book published a year earlier in East Germany. This edition, too, was printed in Leipzig. The book has a colorful history, as the colophon page near the end makes clear. A part of the ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I.
(Flying Lion Press: Sea Island Information Group, 1989)
A curious book that badly needs an editor. Punctuation, grammar, and spelling mistakes abound. Even pagination is a mystery: the two-page introduction that starts on ii is followed by a preface listed as on iii. The ...
The Ready Readers Theater presents Aesop's Fables
(Copycat Press, 1989)
This is a book or reproducible pages for teachers to use with primary classes. Each of seven fables is given six or seven pages. The pages regularly include cut-outs for faces. The booklet's suggestion is that the teacher ...
(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 ...
