That is a great selection if one is allowed just five fables. Perhaps the strongest of the illustrations is of the monkey twirling the spectacles over his head 7.
Bernice Wells Carlson. Illustrated by Georgette Boris. NY: Abingdon Press. A simple pedagogical work for those who work with young people. How do you select, adapt, and alter a play? Aesop gives two of the first subjects dealt with: FG as a subject involving good pantomime possibilities and SW as one that allows for lots of action, including supplemental action by other actors than the principals. Once again, Aesop gets around. Eleanor M. Johnson and Leland B.
Illustrations by Tom Sinnickson. New enlarged edition. Both are "retold from Aesop. Their journey to town takes all night, and they sleep through the next day at Herbert's. The art is just right for a kids' reader. From the school district of Bristol, PA. Good condition.
Scotia, NY:Americana Review. Animals in the wood come across a boot and argue over what it may be. The bear says that it is a fruit rind, the wolf a nest, and the goat a long root. The old owl says that it is a boot, and the rest all dispute him vigorously.

Then they force the owl to leave the wood. The owl's last words are "It is true for all that. It is perhaps typical of this booklet that the story does not carry through to Trot's death. Edited by Diane de Prima. With Original Illustrations by Bernard Krigstein. NY: Capricorn Books: G. Putnam's Sons. This is an important anthology of fables. It is organized by geographic territories, fifteen of which are covered.
In an epilogue "About Fables," di Prima mentions three factors that help shape the collection. Aesop is not heavily represented here, since we know Aesop well. Fable is hard to define, but she has had no problem proceeding on her "feel" for what is a fable. The delight is mostly all I know about them. All eight Spanish fables here come from Cayetano Fernandez, and there is nothing from either Samaniego or Iriarte. All the Russian fables come from Krylov.
La Fontaine has only three fables, perhaps for the same reason for which Aesop has only ten.
Let me mention several among those that are new to me and good. The conceited monkey can find no one to praise her sufficiently, and so she humbly approaches the pig, who lacks all vanity. Whatever she says, the pig answers "Grum, grum" Spain, 3. In the Gesta Romanorum 20 , the story about testing one's wife with a lie about laying an egg becomes a story about voiding a crow! A weasel and hyena hunting encounter two men hunting. The weasel immediately hides. The hyena sees the men and thinks "Here is meat.
The toad bets the rat that he can do more than the rat He walks through a crowd of men, who let him pass because they fear what touching him might bring. The rat tries to do the same and is promptly attacked. Among the best of the illustrations are those of the fox confessing to the wolf and of the dancing apes I wonder if there was a large-format publication of this book. It would do more justice to Krigstein's art.
First paperback edition. A Putnam Capricorn Original. See my comments on the hardbound version. This paperback seems exactly identical within the covers. The back cover lists the fifteen geographic areas. The front cover offers a typical Krigstein illustration. This one features a tortoise talking into a human's ear. Selected and retold by G.

Apparent first printing. Nottingham: Cultural Publications Limited. This book has a strong musty smell! The book has a different -- and good! This story is new to me. I also read the third story, which is a good extended story about the monkey and fox stealing King Lion's crown, robe, and scepter. They create a harsh and ugly government. King Lion returns to claim his throne, and the clever fox opens the castle to him, claiming to be his true servant.
The Lion King uses his help, dismisses the monkey with some punishment and banishes the fox from the court "The Sham King," The fourth story is the "Chanticleer" story. There are several stories here that are typically Renardian: longer than normal fables but including fable material and strategems. Overall, there are nineteen stories, identified by the countries that they come from, including "Dixieland. Compare the illustrations on 10 and I doubt that they came from the same hand.

This book would be worth people's chuckling over at an exhibition. Edited with an introduction by William T. Illustrated by Richard Brough. University, Alabama: University of Alabama Press. This book represents a genuine surprise. After I have read so many books that promise fables but offer something else, here are real fables! William Edward March Campbell apparently worked over this collection for years and had it refused once by one of the publishers of his other works.
Except for a very few that mention Aesop 1, 97, and 98 and one that deliberately redoes his work 30 , the fables are original. Is it wrong to take 1 and 97 as programmatic? The former concludes "the fable is, and always had been, the platitude's natural frame" 2 and the latter has the Delphians killing Aesop in Going's words "not because of the warming of the oracle and not because his wit was too sharp and biting, but because he told fables--nothing but fables--and he was boring" xviii.
Going places March apart from Ade and Thurber, for his style is purposefully flat and folk-like, and totally apart from the allusive, decorative manner of La Fontaine and Gay. He places him rather with Bierce, for his fables are sharp and ironic xvi-xvii. I find them tending overall more than I would want toward a scolding tone. But there is also a rich variety of humor, as when the escaped elephant admits that he has been too thin-skinned for life among humans 5.
Typical and insightful is "The Peacock and His Bride," where the central character admits that what the two have in common is that "we both love me to distraction" Let me list some other fables worth a special look: 29, 52, 53, 56, 57, 64, 71, 77, 84, and Brough's work is often strong, e.

Illustrated by Katherine Evans. This telling of the story does a good job filling out concrete details. Young Peter lived with his poor grandfather, and all they owned was the flock of sheep. As shepherd, Peter looked down from the hill and saw people in the town active working, playing, fishing, and going to market. He ran down the hill and called "A wolf!
