    Hoena, Blake (Cantata Learning. North Mankato, MN, 2018)
    Music by Mark Oblinger. The lyrics and music are printed at the end of the book. The melody line of the music is -- appropriately -- close to "Mary Had a Little Lamb." The villagers get angry upon even the first deception. ...

  • The Ant and the Grasshopper 

    Hoena, Blake (Cantata Learning. North Mankato, MN, 2018)
    Music by Dean Jones. The lyrics and music are printed at the end of the book. The text is heavy on repeated lines. The visual art moves nicely without textual reference through summer and fall and only then mentions ...

    Music by Erik Koskinen. The lyrics and music are printed at the end of the book. Rhyming quatrains take the reader and listener through the fable. The artist pictures the hare cleverly as having the same look on his ...
  • The Fox and the Grapes 

    Hoena, Blake (Cantata Learning. North Mankato, MN, 2018)
    Music by Dean Jones. The lyrics and music are printed at the end of the book. Rhyming quatrains -- heavy on "fox" and "socks" -- work through the fable. This landscape book will appeal to young readers for the simple, ...
  • The Raven and the Fox & other Fables: Jean de La Fontaine 

    Wright, Elizur (The Snake River Press. London, 1986)
    This is a very scarce limited edition I had been watching at Rooke Books for some time. When they offered a 40% off sale, I made the decision to go for it. Beautifully illustrated by Geoffrey Trenaman with five colour ...
  • La Fontaine: összes meséi 

    Vikár Béla; Szántai Zsolt (Szukits Koyvkiadó. Budapest, Hungary, 2000)
    Vikar Bela translated La Fontaine into Hungarian in 1929. The highly dramatic black-and-white illustrations are strong and frequent. I appreciate the illustration on 23 for "The Serpent with Many Tails and the Serpent ...

    no author (Mladé letá. Bratislava, Slovakia, 1986)
    This children's book is composed of seven thick boards bound together. On the cover a grasshopper with moustache sits on a mushroom playing his fiddle as a row of ants marches by carrying or rolling food and an ant-baby. ...

    no author (Pannon Literatura. Kisujszallas, Hungary, 2008)
    This is a curious book formed out of four folding stiff cardboard pages. The front page features a dramatic colored group including a lion, a mule, and a crab. We open to a two-page presentation of LM. We soon see an ...
  • La Fontaine: A tücsök es a hangya 

    Kiadás, Második (Mora Ferenc Könyvkiadó. Budapest, 1977)
    On this foray into the old Eastern Europe, I found Jean Effel more than once. It is good to see that an excellent artist was picked up and reproduced in the Eastern Block countries! This edition includes 21 fables with ...
  • The Mysterious Library: A Coloring Book Journey Into Fables 

    Na, Lauren (Seven Seas Entertainment. 2016)
    First published in 2015 by Hyeonamsa Publishing Company in Korea. I bought this book at the Joslyn, happy to find a fable book that they had discovered of which I had known nothing. Alas, it is not a fable book at all. ...

  • Aesop's Fables: The Lion and the Mouse 

    no author (Miles Kelly. Essex, England, 2016)
    I find this a strong presentation of the familiar fable. The little mouse is particularly curious,and thus he ventures into the lion's cave, where he is promptly caught. Perhaps the best image of this oversized pamphlet ...
  • Le Roman du Renard 

    no author (Jules Tallandier. Paris, 1955)
    If any artist can do justice to the "Romance of Renard," I imagine it is Rabier. Here is an edition that I suspect is made for children. I recognize fable material in the presentation at the following places: "Renard et ...
