This book seems an exact reproduction of one done in the same year by Gallery Books of Smith Publishers of NY. That book was printed in Hong Kong. This book is in the series Wishing Well Books by Joshua Morris Publishing of Southport CT. It was printed in Singapore. I continue to think very highly of Biro's illustrations of Aesop. I will add my comments from that volume. One of the best renditions I have seen lately. The pictures are excellent, well produced, and witty. Some stories besides SW miss, as when the dolphin does not use a proper name with the monkey. Some are softened: the cow only hurts the frogs, and the eagle only steals the young fox. The best line is I have seen lots of bags, but this is the only one I have ever seen with a cat's head! This edition was produced in conjunction with an audio cassette. The packaging includes a reference also to House of Lloyd, Inc. Might that firm be perhaps a distributor?
