The Jackdaw and the Witch: A True Fable.
A winning animal story. Mr. Hotfoot Jackson, the jackdaw, makes himself the pet of the family of Sybil Leek, the witch. Leek has a predilection for run-on sentences. Enjoyable reading. A fable? The sub-title is a ...
The Lion and the Mouse.
The same book as the edition of 1979 but with a slightly different spine and title page. The illustrations here may be a bit darker. See my comments on the original.
The Mouse and the Lion
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1962)
A second-generation fable that recalls Aesop's story at a key point. The mouse and the lion set out independently for the city to visit the world of people. A fairy meets each, fears for the mouse and for people's ...

The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 407(cloth)
This paper edition is in the poorest condition of the four different editions I have of this nice oversized booklet. The cover picture matches that of the paper edition (#2912). Like the two copies of #476, this is called ...
The Tortoise and the Hare
Identical with the adjacent entry except for the change in publisher. That change is also responsible for taking away the Reading Rainbow designation. Otherwise the book seems exactly the same as the Holiday House ...
Toby Tortoise and the Hare
(Walt Disney Enterprises, 1938)
I am glad at last to have some original Disney fable work. The presentation is surprising. It assumes the race. During it, Max shows off for the little-girl rabbits at Miss Cottontail's Boarding School. (They can be ...
La Tortue et le lièvre/The Tortoise and the Hare.
(National Textbook Company, 1978)
See the parallel Spanish/English version by the same author/artist and publisher: Tina la Tortuga y Carlos el Conejo/Tina the Turtle and Carlos the Rabbit (1972/84/90). Only the names (and thus the titles) are changed ...
