A Brief History of Fables: From Aesop to Flash Fiction
(Hesperus Press, 2011)
"I have returned to this book not regarding that I had already catalogued it without looking into it. This is not the first time that this has happened: too many books and too many years! I will start with my more recent ...
(Albin Michel, 2003)
"Amazon's summary is a good start: "Les philo-fables, ce sont des fables simples et riches de sens tirées de la philosophie occidentale, de la mythologie et des sagesses d'Orient. 60 fables accompagnées de questions, de ...
Fabel von Bahndamm und andere Fablen & Texte
(Verlag Eremiten-Presse, 1977)
"Here is another book about which I can honestly say: "I have no idea what to do with this book!" I believe it honors "VauO," Viktor Otto Stomps, by presenting some of his works along with strong full-page woodcuts. I ...
Les Philo-Fables pour Vivre Ensemble
(Albin Michel Jeunesse, 2009)

Fables sous rêve (1960-1970)
"Oops! This book seems to have the form of a journal. A casual glance does not find more than a metaphorical sense to "fable" here. I keep it in the collection to warn off the next collector!"
The Nun's Priest's Tale of Chaucer
(Allen and Richard Lane, 1950)
This is a beautiful limited edition book. It impresses me particularly for its title-page art: a glorious presentation of the two main characters in red, gold, and black. The flutter of feathers around the title is perfect ...
Peace Tales: World Folktales to Talk About
(Linnet Books: The Shoe String Press, Inc., 1992)
"This book works for peacemaking by telling stories and asking readers to think and talk about them. There is probably something fable-like in each of the 37 stories. I notice eight that are more properly fables. They ...
One Hundred More Wisdom Stories
(Lion Hudson, 2013)
