A Sip of Aesop
(Scholastic Inc.,, 1995)
This printing is marked as different from the 1995 second printing I received as a gift from Vera Ruotolo. On the back of the title-page one reads First Scholastic Trade paperback printing, August, 2000. That page has ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Old Man and Death.
(The Good Book Press, 1986)
A beautifully made little book that tells this Aesopic story very well. The size seems to me to work against the two cuts. There is an exquisite design of hatchet and wood on the cover. For other work by Peter and Donna ...
(Harvard University Press, 1967)
A valuable book for which I sought a long time. I was amazed to find it in this downtown San Diego store whose owner thought he had nothing for me. The introduction gives a clear picture of the provenance of Caxton's ...
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.
(Adam & Charles Black, 1912)
This edition has a dust jacket but seems otherwise to reproduce my 1950 reprinting of the 1912 original. The colored illustrations are particularly well done here. This is what I wrote on that 1950 reprinting: It reduces ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1952)
This is another hardbound version of the book I had found in many printings. See my comments there under 1952. This book makes no reference to Tip-Top Elf Books. This book, which had lived both at the Peabody Institute ...
Never Cry Wolf!: A Fable Retold
(Sunflower Press, 1987)
A lovely little book, printed as well as told and illustrated by Cunningham. This miniature book is a good example of strategic repetition and variation. It looks like the same illustration is used for all three pages ...
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1921)
Apparently the American version of the British Coker edition (1921/33). Check my notes there. This edition adds two illustrations: TH (22) and FS (84). The pictures are done here on better, thicker paper; their colors ...
Fun with Aesop: Activity Edition, Volume I
(Telcraft: Tell Publications, 1991)
Six Aesopic fables well told for children. Some of the animals get specific names. There is a moral at the end of each fable, and then two or three brief comments. The fable is then retold in verse in a fashion that ...
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 ...
