This is the seventh version I have found of Lisbeth Zwerger's Aesop book. Her "Aesop: 12 Fabeln" appeared in 1989 as a large-format book. Two large English versions also appeared, apparently at the same time. There has been also a smaller English version and an even smaller German version. Cover pictures on other versions are either of the dancing camel or of TMCM. Here we have a paperbound version of an otherwise identical hardbound version of 2006 from the same publisher. The title-page reorganizes how the publisher is listed, and the back cover is organized slightly differently from both the back cover and the dust-jacket of the hardbound version. FC on the front cover. This lovely book measures 9½" x 8¾". I still find Zwerger's artistry enchanting. The back cover puts at the top "12 Fables by Aesop," the original German title.
