Fabulous Fables: Using Fables with Children.
(Good Year BooksScott Foresman: Harper Collins, 1991)
A very helpful book for second through fourth grades. The introduction mixes up two important things: the number of lessons and the sequence of parts in the book. There are twelve lessons. There is first an overview ...
Fabulas: Desenhos de Wiese
(Companhia Editora Nacional, 1943)
Color illustrated paper boards. Seventy-three fables on 157 pages. My impression is that some develop from Aesop (e.g., A Cigarra e as duas Formigas, 9), while most are pretty straightforwardly Aesopic (e.g., A Galinha ...
Fabeln aus aller Welt
(Julius Beltz, 1965)
A beautiful edition, portions of which I had seen in the less satisfying reprint The King and the Parrot and Other Fables (1969). This book contains five fables besides the seven reprinted there. New here are The Blue ...

Feathers and Tails
(Philomel Books, 1992)
Here is an extra copy of the first impression, with dust-jacket. Eighteen fables, two proverbs, and one riddle in a selection of wonderful variety and freshness. Besides old friends from La Fontaine (2), India, and Aesop ...
A Book of Fables
(Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 1935)
This book is identical with another in the collection except for a few features. Like that book, it uses the plates used in my apparent first edition of Jack Orr's Aesop's Fables, which I have listed under 1927? Please ...
The Fables of Odo of Cheriton
(Syracuse University Press, 1985)
Odo died in 1247. This work is a curious and engaging congeries of scripture, Aesop, Reynard and other typical sources of medieval literature. The focus seems more on allegory than on fable or even on story. Are these ...
Mini Treasure Chest of Great Fairy Tales III Book 3
(Tormont Publications, 1991)
The back cover lists the three stories in this 16-page pamphlet: "Ali Baba"; "Amin and the Eggs"; and "The Tail of the Bear." "Amin and the Eggs" is a clever story. Amin is a poor peasant who gets a dozen hard-boiled ...
