El Leon y el Raton
(Troll Associates, 1981)
See my comments on the English version. I feared after bidding on this booklet that I was purchasing something I already had. Surprise! I was right, but it was in a different language.
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Troll Associates, 1981)
I have had this book for twenty-three years, but there was a new addition in this eBay advertisement: story cards for a literary center. I was curious. The book remains the same, and I will include my earlier remarks on ...
The Rich Man and the Shoe-maker: A Fable by La Fontaine
(Oxford University Press, 1965)
See the original publication of this book by Oxford University Press in 1965 and my comments there. This copy is part of -- and is kept with -- Into Books: Literature Pack No. 1: Brian Wildsmith's Fables listed under ...
The Tortoise and the Hare
(Whitman Publishing Company, 1935)
At first this edition looks exactly like that from David McKay of the same year. But there are some clear differences. See my comments there and then note these differences. The biggest is that there is no aftermath of ...
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Andersen Press Ltd., 2008)
Here is a second copy I bought at the same time as the first. This is a bigger version of the book Ross first did in 1985. My copy comes from 1981. Not only the size, the publisher, and the place of printing have changed. ...
(Houghton Mifflin, 1969)

Dame Cigale et Dame Fourmi
(Kenworthy Educational Service, 1970)
This book is exactly identical with the pamphlet version of the same year, title, and publisher. I do not know whether the Perma-Bound hard cover comes from the publisher or perhaps from some librarian. In any case, the ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Rand McNally & Company, 1973)
I thought I had this book, and was wrong again! In fact, it is a copy of the much larger book of the same year from the same company. Where that book was 8 x 10¼, this little book is 4¾ x 6½. This book needs thinner ...
The Grasshopper and the Ants
(Walt Disney Productions, 1971)
Slight reworking, to accompany an audiocassette, of the Western booklet (1968) of the same name. So Hop here is again joined by Gabriel the cricket, Bubba the vulture, and Andy the savior ant. The plates are the same. ...
Las manchas del sapo: How the Toad Got His Spots
(National Textbook Company, 1987)
Here is an aetiological fable. True to the fashion of this series, the story's illustrations are repeated as the story is told first in Spanish and then in English. Luisito loves to sing and dance, even though he is not ...
