A Crow in Borrowed Feathers/The Boy Who Cried 'Wolf!'
No Thumbnail Available
Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while the left present the text with one telling symbol. This version adds a nymph to the crow and feathers story and makes it a matter of selecting a king. All in this series of nine (I am apparently missing the tenth) add hard covers and a title page to the JOIE softbound text. This volume seems unique in that it changes the title of the second story from The Shepherd Who Alwasy Lied. The inside color is never as brilliant as JOIE's. The covers are the same, but with new fonts and a cameo of Aesop's Fables instead of doubled print; the volume number, Illustrated Fantasy Book for Children, and the horn-blowing angel are gone. The second copy was both printed and bound in the United Kingdom and has slightly different approaches to the last page and the back cover. Its coloration is not as strong as that of the first copy.
