AESOP'S FABLES Illustrated with full page color plates by HEIDI HOLDER Published by Viking 1981 25 pages .
A fine unmarked copy in a dustjacket with scuffing to corner and spine tips, several closed tears. What others are saying.
This gorgeous picture book by Heidi Holder, which presents nine well-known fables, was my launching point into a new endeavor. Here the reader will encounter: The Dove and the Snake, in which the dove is saved by the competing actions of two hunters, the snake and the man.

Aesop's Fables is a 2000 collection of 61 fables from the Aesop ouvre, retold by Jerry Pinkney. It includes stories about wolves, foxes, lions, dogs, mice, and donkeys. These are beautiful illustrations, combining pencil, colored pencil and watercolor with a light-as-air touch. The book is handsomely designed, in a large format, and fine paper sets off the illustrations to their best advantage.
This collection includes picture books of both Aesop's Fables and Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. Beautifully illustrated, they have been rewritten especially with younger children in mind. Among Aesop's Fables are the story of The Ant and the Grasshopper, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Hare and the Tortoise, The Lion and the Mouse and The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse. All of these have their morals simply explained and will help children understand simple life lessons. The Just So Stories picture books are funny and fantastical and explain why some animals are the way they.

In their telling of The Lion and the Mouse the king of the jungle leaps off the page spreading his paws in an effort to liberate himself from snares so magnificently formed they almost reach out to grab the reader.
