The King and the Parrot and Other Fables.
(Borzoi Book: Alfred A. Knopf, 1969)
A fascinating book. The seven fables presented here (out of the twelve in Fabeln Aus Aller Welt) include five Aesopic fables, each with one black-and-white page and a double page of color: The Mortal and the Satyr, The ...
(Wonder Books: Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
A happy little book with three fables among its six stories between washable covers. The shepherd boy here wants wolves to come for more excitement! Also FG and TH. Simple art. The Greg Williams version seems to be the ...
My Book of 1-Minute Stories and Verses
(Exeter Books, 1987)
Thirty-seven lively stories in a book I like. Ten are Aesop's fables, all with the delightful illustrations of Malcolm Livingstone from The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables (1985). This edition adds The Silly ...
Fábulas de Esopo/Vida de Esopo/Fábulas de Babrio.
(Editorial Gredos, 1978)
My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...
Aesop's Fables/Greek Myths/Bible Stories.
(Si-Sa-Mun-Hwa-SaSisa Munhwasa, 1978)
Ten fables with Korean footnotes, many with clever Checkup exercises at the bottom of the page. The tellings and the art are both traditional, apparently borrowed from a standard source (not Jacobs). The illustration ...

One simple illustration for each of the twenty fables, which include several (35-42) non-Aesopic stories. The wolf does not eat the lamb (11). There are English Helps to Study after the fables. Both the texts and ...
The Golden Axe/Two Grateful Magpies
(Si-sa-yong-o-sa, Inc, 1985)
A very pleasing book. The Golden Axe is Aesopic (though never acknowledged here as such) and nicely elaborated and illustrated for this culture. Dokbo lives in a village tucked away in the mountains. The artist ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1
(Polytechnic Education Ltd.Samnakphim Phī. Ēt., 1979)
A strange little booklet. The first nine stories are vintage Aesop, finishing with a boxed moral in English and illustrated by (xeroxed?) polychrome and monochrome work of Robert Ayton in his small Ladybird editions of ...
Endangered Species and Other Fables with a Twist.
(Stemmer House Publishers, 1979)
This book easily vaults into the first rank, with Calder and Levine, for interest and wit. The tales are twisted (sometimes a la Bierce): the grasshopper has joined a rock group, and the ant gets angry. Among the best: ...
The Little Turtle That Could Not Stop Talking.
(Platt & Munk, 1939)
Undated selection of two stories presented in The Road in Storyland (1932). Good runs of the lovely colored illustrations; two of the four illustrations here are rendered only in black-and-white.
