Here is a second copy of this book. See the 1983 Aesop's Fables done by the same people and published by Silver Burdett. Silver Burdett had the book then from Hamlyn, who had the copyright. Here Hamlyn cleverly uses the same materials again, as they had already used some of Mathias and Frankland's work in My Gold Storybook in 1981. Here there are twenty fables scattered over the book, but always in two-page spreads facing each other. Back then I chose as one of the best of the line drawings The Stag and the Pool (109). Now I would add BW (209). Frankland's work may be best exemplified by The Monkey & the Buffalo (59). Meg Rutherford's initials and dates are still clear on many of the line drawings, and the dates have not been changed.
