Heavy riders like myself and other riders who want more range have fixed their Landwheel by doubling the landwheel battery. I did that in January and it worked fantastic. The ESC performed perfect. Acceleration was stronger. Range was about 13 kilometers. I weigh over KG. May , I converted the landwheel to 4WD. It works even better than double battery. The fast discharge rate of the battery causes one other problem.
If riders ignore the vibration alert and continue riding, the battery can be damaged. Riders should not ignore the vibration alert but they do. Riders are confused when the vibration alert is activated but then seconds later the landwheel accelerated like it has a fresh battery. So they keep riding. I have taken voltage measurements with single battery landwheel. The ESC is programmed to cause a vibration alert at 36 volts. However, in the time it takes to remove the battery and test the voltage, the voltage recovers to over 40 volts. If you insert the battery again, the remote shows the blue lights are on so the rider thinks they can continue past the vibration alert.
This type of riding damages the battery because the voltage keeps bouncing below 36 volts. However, the proper way to ride a landwheel is to stop at the first vibration alert. If you double the battery, the problem is solved, even for heavy riders. The discharge rate is cut in half so the voltage does not fluctuate so much. The vibration alert is not activated until the rider has a long ride and the rider is less likely to continue because the battery indicator remains stable at a low indicator light.
The rider should still stop and change batteries after the first vibration alert.
In my riding group in Ottawa, my 4WD landwheel is the fastest at accelerating, has the fastest top speed and the longest range during the warm summer days. When the weather is cold like now, my range becomes shorter. I have raced against Mellow boards and Evolve GT. They are much slower at accelerating and at top speed. I have tried a Meepo 4WD. The landwheel 4wd is much faster. My brakes are safe. The Meepo brakes are very dangerous.
So yes, the Landwheel is not perfect. But if you understand its weaknesses, it can be the most amazing board in any group of riders.
MEERESSCHILDKRÖTE - Definition and synonyms of Meeresschildkröte in the German dictionary
I understand the frustration of people who have landwheel with single batteries. However, if you really love the way the landwheel accelerates, there is a way to fix it. If you stop quickly after the vibration alert, the batteries last a long time. The story of the landwheel is a bit like the fable of the Turtois and the Hare. The Turtle lasts longer in the race. But who wants to accelerate like a turtle on a skateboard when you can accelerate like a rabbit.
Es ist sicherlich nicht perfekt, aber die Beschleunigung und Geschwindigkeit sind unglaublich. Es gibt eigentlich kein Problem mit dem ESC. Leichte Fahrer wie Ihr Sohn haben nicht so viele Probleme, weil die Batterie nicht so hart arbeiten muss und die Entladung langsamer ist.
Ich habe das im Januar gemacht und es hat fantastisch funktioniert. Der ESC hat perfekt funktioniert. Die Reichweite betrug etwa 13 Kilometer. Mai habe ich das Landwheel auf 4WD umgebaut. Es funktioniert sogar besser als doppelte Batterie. Die schnelle Entladungsrate der Batterie verursacht ein anderes Problem. Fahrer sollten den Vibrationsalarm nicht ignorieren, aber sie tun es. Also fahren sie weiter. Ich habe Spannungsmessungen mit einem Batterieladrad gemacht. Die Fahrer denken nicht, dass sie etwas falsch gemacht haben, also beschuldigen sie die Batterien als defekt.
Die richtige Art, ein Landwheel zu fahren, besteht jedoch darin, bei der ersten Vibrationswarnung anzuhalten. Die Entladungsrate ist halbiert, so dass die Spannung nicht so stark schwankt. Der Vibrationsalarm wird nicht aktiviert, bis der Fahrer eine lange Fahrt hat und der Fahrer weniger wahrscheinlich weitermacht, da die Batterieanzeige bei einer niedrigen Anzeigeleuchte stabil bleibt. Der Fahrer sollte nach dem ersten Vibrationsalarm noch anhalten und die Batterien wechseln.
Ich habe einen Meepo 4WD ausprobiert. Das Landwheel 4wd ist viel schneller. Meine Bremsen sind sicher. Also ja, das Landwheel ist nicht perfekt. Ich verstehe die Frustration von Leuten, die mit einzelnen Batterien Landwheel haben. Wenn Sie nach dem Vibrationsalarm schnell anhalten, halten die Batterien lange. I still have these two Landwheel X5s and nothing to do with them.
I love it on the Vanguard. I chose Flex1. So much more traction with the brakes. It out accelerates everything else even when the other rider is half my weight. Top speed is I highly recommend swapping pivot bushings. Bones Yellow barrel bushings on the bottom. Yellow Bones Cone bushings on the top. Watch my videos for instructions on mechanically connecting the remotes together. I also recommend connecting the two batteries together to balance the power levels. Power down as soon as the remote vibrates or within a minute of the third blue dot flashing. This will protect your battery from damage.
Expect about 13 km of range. Avoid riding in cold weather. Even with 4WD, the cold weather range is limited and the voltage can drop quickly. Its an interesting option if you have a band saw and a drill press. Road vibration is minimized if you isolate the deck between a layer of rubber top and bottom. This tip to reduce vibration works on any electric skateboard. Landwheel L3-x already has lower vibration than most electric skate boards due to the large wheel diameter, Thick PU on the motor wheels and softer than normal PU on the motor wheels.
Make sure you have the polycarbonate shells. Also, put a radius on the motor wheels before you start riding. Notice that I added a teather to the rear of my skateboards. The teather allows you to brake faster and lean forward harder prior to accelleration. Also, if you make a mistake in your balance, the teather can be used to pull yourself back to the center of the board. Or if you need to jump off, the teather keeps you board by your side. Great for towing the skateboard across the street at busy intersections with high curbs.
Okay ich verstehe das Problem liegt einfach daran dass die Landwheel Batterien sich dreimal schneller entladen als normale Akku. Auf jeden Fall Luzifers schon mal viel besser und so kann ich auch ab und zu mal mitfahren die Kinder kommen mit einem Akku aus.
Google Translation: Okay I understand the problem is simply because the Landwheel batteries discharge three times faster than normal battery. English Response: Hi Germane: If i understand the translaton correctly, you have built a double battery landwheel using the charging station as the second battery bay. YOu can now climb a 15 degree hill for M at 20kph and you are a KG rider. This impresses you but soon after the Land wheel cuts out more safely. After the cut out you can continue. Gift, Sept. The latter gives them a good bridge in winter but sweeps them away in spring.
A second fable, "The Frog and The Snake," has a frog seeking better territory but then returning home only to find a snake has inhabited his den. Good advice! In a fable similar to TMCM, a young raccoon setting out meets an old raccoon, whose life in the city was good but destructive for him. The young raccoon thanks him and goes into the forest rather than the city. The story of an overeager badger concludes with this lovely moral: "The most important thing t o do if you find yourself in a hole is to stop digging" 8.
A bear learns from a fellow bear mauled by bees to seek berries instead. The author cleverly puts Buffett's good advice into the story of a small sea turtle ready to break out of his shell and make a dash for the sea: "Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful" A stray puppy becomes a trusted pet over years and then bites the farmer's hand. If you thin about that you'll do things differently" A later gem is this: "Forecasts may tell you a great deal about the forecaster; they tell you nothing about the future" So big fish immediately eats middle fish.
The final fable, "The Greedy Queen Bee," finishes with this moral: "If you're in the luckiest one percent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 percent" The art is, I would say, adequate. This book is more engaging than I thought it would be. Here is a second copy of a book I have already enjoyed.
This copy is inscribed to me and signed by Tom Kerry and John Prescott. I am delighted to include it in the collection. As I wrote of the first copy I was given, this book is more engaging than I thought it would be. The story of an overeager badger concludes with this lovely moral: "The most important thing to do if you find yourself in a hole is to stop digging" 8.
If you think about that you'll do things differently" NY: North-South Books. This is my sixth book by Watts dating back to The tortoise takes the initiative at a friendly picnic of the animals. The hare dawdles while eating along the way. One of the best moments in the illustrations has him gorging on lettuce and smiling. Watts is again very good at filling in the illustrations with various little animals, plants, and other objects scattered around the scene.
In this version the passing tortoise hears the hare snoring! Unusual at the end is that the hare is the first to congratulate the tortoise. They leave happily together. Illustrationen von Eleanor Sommer. This is one of many books lovingly set aside by the manager of Hassbecker's. My last visit had been probably three years earlier, and she had been setting aside fable books ever since! This one is a delight. Its back cover speaks of the forty nicest animal fables from a variety of authors newly narrated for this edition, the texts complemented by charming illustrations with lively color arranged in the manner of collages.
The frontispiece, repeated on 31, of DLS offers a good example of Sommer's appealing collage-like art. Particularly pleasing is her rendition of BF on Retold by Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss. Illustrations by Baird Hoffmire. Hamilton and Weiss approach the stories as engaging storytellers. Their good renditions of the stories are complemented by helpful presentations on how these fables fulfill the requirements of Common Core State Standards. A second appendix traces, perhaps in a slightly popular manner, the sources of these stories.
For example, CJ 12 has a second phase: a boy passes by and finds the diamond a great gift for his mother. Similarly, in the story of the two stubborn goats 14 the two not only knock each other off the bridge. In the water they blame each other. New to me is "The Oyster and the Heron" The cartoons are helpful, if somewhat predictable.
Be careful: the source investigation at the end is based on alphabetical order, not the order of presentation in this engaging book. Here is a first! This is indeed a journal for writing one's thoughts and experiences. The tiny lines in the journal are Aesop's fables. As an advertising slip proclaims, "The journal lines are the novel in teeny, tiny text!
To make reading even harder, the fables' titles are done in yellow against white. Many will find them impossible to read. The cover is graced by "Whatever you do, do with all of your might. Clever idea! Published by C. What a delightful discovery! I have had this book for over six months and now at last have a chance to look into it. IL would say that Prof. Hadavas is a kindred spirit. He obviously likes fables! For the 34 fables presented here in Greek with notes and vocabulary, there is a wide variety of engaging translations and illustrations, highlighted by Rackham's FG on the front cover in black-and-white and Crane's "Lion in Love" in color on the back cover.
Imagine my surprise when I began moving into the extensive introductory materials to find that I was there with Ben E. Perry and Laura Gibbs on the page of acknowledgments! Thank you! I also noted happily the nod to the discussion I offered on the definition of fable xiii, mentioned again on xxiii. The variety of illustrators and translators would make this a great book in which to try out one's Greek! The two illustrators I want to learn more about are Mulready and Takeo Takei.
In fact, I just made an offer on the latter's fable book because of this reading! Charles Santore. Here is a soft-cover book with staple binding offering 21 images to color on 48 pages. The images are preparatory drawings for the watercolor paintings Santore did for his Aesop's Fables, published by Sterling Children's Books in Morals for the 21 drawings are listed at the beginning and under each appropriate drawing. The inside covers present the paintings themselves, including the cover's dramatic picture of the owl and grasshopper -- perhaps just before the owl takes care of this nuisance by eating him!
The comparison of the early drawing with the final product is intriguing. If nothing else, these drawings show where the artist is deciding to put his focus. Nicely done! Julie Meighan. Cork, Ireland: JemBooks. Here is a paperback book printed a week before I ordered it. After eleven "drama games" not related to fables, the book offers eighteen plays based on Aesopic fables. In GA on 17, the grasshopper is listening to music on his iPod. The grasshopper in winter goes to various animals who refuse to feed him.
The bears, for example, are angry that he wakes them up. The ants give him food but make him promise that next year he will work hard in the summer. The moral: "Fail to prepare? Prepare to fail! After a great first half of the race, the hare decides to take a nap.
In BW 24 , one of the sheep makes the first suggestion that the boy shepherd pretend that there a wolf is attacking the sheep. The next time, the sheep do not know that it is a trick. They challenge the boy afterwards: "You frightened us. It may be the only book I have seen in a while which takes a special page to say "The End" Illustrated by Gavin Scott. Essex, England: Miles Kelly.
I find this a strong presentation of the familiar fable. The little mouse is particularly curious,and thus he ventures into the lion's cave, where he is promptly caught. Perhaps the best image of this oversized pamphlet shows the mouse with closed eyes enjoying the racing of the lion in the jungle while sitting in his mane. Editorial Director: Rosie Neave. Essex, UK: Miles Kelly. Gift of Wendy Wright, Nov. This IS a big book of Aesop's fables!
The pictures are large and dynamic. I agree with the back cover: "perfect for reading aloud with your child. The tortoise goes to bed the night before the race in TH, while the hare parties late with the badgers. Well into the race, the hare can look back and see how far behind the tortoise is. Then he eats lettuce and decides to take a short nap.
From now on perhaps he wouldn't be so boastful" On the second day of alarm in BW, little George breaks into a courtroom to cry "There really is a wolf this time! The people who grumbled after the first alarm now become very cross. Soon after they leave, George notices something moving in the trees. In GA, the grasshopper does nothing in summer but sleep, eat, dance, and make music. There is no indication that others enjoy his music or profit from it.
Thus he admits to the ant at the latter's door in winter "I didn't do any work at all! In this version, the ant gives him as much food as he could spare: just enough to see the grasshopper through the winter. These miserable months teach him a lesson. The following summer he works hard to store enough food for himself.
He even finds time to help the ant! In TMCM, the plain country food is bread and cheese and the bed is made of leaves. The point of emphasis about the town house is that it is comfortable. In town, they meet a cat in the kitchen and hide under a cup. Dogs interrupt them as they feast in the dining room. Each traveling mouse wears a backpack. Translator Johanna Wege. Illustriert von Marc Chagall. Erste Auflage. It was great of Frau Hassbecker to create a little collection of recent German fable books for me, and this was one of them.
I suspect that many either went underground or were destroyed in WWII. The color reproductions here are excellent. This is a lovely little edition! Sabiha Al Khemir. The book works in English in one direction and in Arabic in the other, with mirror-opposites of the same illustrations at each step along the way towards the book's center. The wise fish is gone immediately without even saying good-bye, and the fishermen are already putting their nets into the water.
The other two stories, that are told in such leisure elsewhere with illustrative fables, are pared down to the strict narrative. I feel the loss! The Dimna page appears also on the cover of the book. A second good illustration shows Dimna whispering into King Lion's ear There is an excellent rendition of the doves in the net on Eve Morel. Illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa. NY: Sterling Children's Books. Gift of Mary Pat Ryan, Dec. This book was originally copyrighted by Grosset and Dunlap in Our collection has a printing of that edition.
The copyright was taken over by Ronald Fujikawa in Surprising about that fact is that he took over copyright not only to Fujikawa's illustrations but to Morel's texts. Now Sterling reprints that edition. The only change I can notice is in the pagination. I was originally surprised to find that this book includes the earlier edition labeled "Fairy Tales" by the same pair. As I wrote then, Morel does an excellent job of telling the fourteen fables that are here, including the morals as a final statement within the story.
The bull makes an apt final comment about the gnat, for example: "It takes a small mind to be so conceited" CP ends with "Where there's a will, there's always a way" SW 51 follows the poorer version. My favorite illustration is still of the cat pulling down the tablecloth Here is a great wildcard inclusion: "The Dragon and the Monkey" 42 , the old "I left my heart at home" story. Alison Murray. First published in Great Britain in by Orchard Books.
This is a large-format -- almost 10" x 12" -- children's book. It sets a young reader up well for things to come in the race when it describes hare in terms that will come to play later. His ears are accustomed to the sound of animals cheering, and his paws are used to crossing the finish line in first place. A few nibbles lead to a tiny nap. Hare dreams of animals cheering: there is the clue. He wakes up to that cheering and tries to catch up but loses by a breath. Big broad illustrations and rhyming couplets help tell this tale well.
Tortoise consoles Hare at the end: "You might just win next time" and then suggests a race to the lettuce patch. The endpapers reproduce in monochrome the map of the race. Alexandre Jardin. Illustrated by Fred Multier. The colophon for this charming little booklet is so long and complex that I could not find out some of the information that I needed. Hachette, McDonald's, The Marketing Store Worldwide, and Havi Global Solutions seem to have the rights locked up, but which of them produced this booklet or where is not clear.
Apparently the series takes La Fontaine's fables and makes them into a page by page quest, where we need to answer questions -- not necessarily germane to the fable -- before moving on. This milkmaid is swinging her pail around rather than carrying it on her head, and she has Billy, her friendly puppy, with her. La Fontaine's fable is given the last two pages. Before then we get a longer prose version that wanders through some 25 pages. The setting is the "Far West. Answer: the horns of the bull.
As Billy and Perrette converse about her eggs in the next scene, our question concerns the Mariachi band playing near them. And so on. Perrette's dreams even construct a gigantic amusement park and get her into a circus performance. There is plenty of spirit and imagination here. I think La Fontaine would love it, if he would recognize it. This booklet inspired me to seek the rest of the booklets in the series. It is not yet clear whether I will be able to "bring them in. Jean de La Fontaine. This is a colorful cartoonlike presentation of FC on stiff shiny paper.
The presentation consists of five two-page spreads that play well with the story. The crow rests on a pillow in his perch, with squirrel, worm, and butterfly as his neighbors. The fox wears human clothes, including suspenders, jeans, and sneakers. The squirrel holds his ears when the crow breaks into jubilant song. Three other booklets in the series are illustrated on the back cover.
Alan Wong. London: Austin Macauley. Gift of the publishers, May, ' Let me offer a quick reaction and then include some comments from the publisher's agent, who offered me the book. I find this book a noble effort. It is a challenge to write fables that can compel contemporary readers. I enjoyed the first few fables in this book. I also wondered: can the writer continue to write short, pointed fables? For me, the answer is not clear. I tried various fables after the first few. Several confirmed my fears that the author would want to write longer stories. One "The Loveless Maiden"  confirmed my fear that short fables would be obvious.
I look forward to reading more. Here is what the agent wrote to me. Expressed through easily accessible tales from nature, told through the interactions of animals and plants as well as people, the collection explores important themes like friendship, strength, arrogance, conceit, humility and many other characteristics spanning the whole breadth of human emotions. My interest was such that I wanted to begin writing them myself.
The stories in my book are inspired by many different works, observations and general experiences in my life. Each fable gives us an insight about the effects of wrongdoing, the rewards of virtue or a deeper understanding of the world around us. Written by Jan Payne. Illustrated by Michael Terry. This book is built off a publication by the same team and still has that copyright.
It has reduced from 25 fables on pages to 23 fables on On the earlier cover was "A Beautiful Collection of Timeless Tales"; now we find "A classic collection of fantastic fables. I continue to find the versions and the illustrations playful and helpful. As I observed then, the versions routinely soften drastic outcomes in the fables.
In BW, the boy says the first two times that the shepherd's shouting scared the wolf off In this version of GA, the ant happens by the grasshopper in winter and helps the grasshopper on condition that he promise to change next summer A snail travelling with the tortoise in TH is so exhausted that we can see his breath A mouse rides on the tortoise's back in the same picture.
There is a fine double-page of the dramatic moment in LM. Another happy ending comes in DS 49 when the dog's mistress gives him the bone which he lost and which she then found in the stream. In FG, the fox tries to pole vault and to let the breeze carry him and his umbrella In GGE, the farmer and his wife demand more production from the "Golden Goose" 84 , threatening otherwise to take her to market. This goose leaves, and the couple bickers until they get over their greed and return to their former way of life.
The occasion for TT is that the tortoise wants to have some fun and has envied other animals. There is a fine illustration of the larger tortoise between the two ducks just after takeoff on The tortoise answers a crow "I am special" and tumbles to the ground but only has the wind knocked out of him. The donkey does a fine dance on the table before the lapdog explains the donkey to the farmer. Another fine image has the farmer's wife running to help punish the crazy donkey. The fox tries several approaches with the crow in FC: the cheese is too large for one bird; the cheese will make the crow fat; we need to talk closer to each other; people say you have a great singing voice This book is a curious specimen.
It offers, on facing pages, ten of Krylov's most popular fables. While it has ISBN numbers, it does not have a publisher. It does not acknowledge a translator. The translations are in prose. Of course, it was printed upon demand soon after I ordered it. What an unusual pamphlet! Naomi Gen-Gur. Illustrated by Shahar Kober. The two characters have animal bodies but human clothes. The hard-working ant has a babushka and glasses. The story goes through the cricket's week. On Friday morning he stays in bed before he will bake a "yum-yummy cake" for Shabbat.
He oversleeps and awakens on Friday afternoon to find no food in his pantry, fridge, or cupboard. He goes to his neighbor ant no less than four times to ask for different ingredients. Ant rests, happy that she has helped a friend. Ant however also oversleeps and has forgotten to turn off her oven.
Her Shabbat cake is totally burned. Just as ant is despairing over her meager meal, cricket surprises her with an invitation to share his cake. They sing and dance together. This is a clever adaptation of the traditional fable with a whole new kind of lesson to be learned. The title fooled me on this book of the creative prose and poetry of Phoenix Coulton. For some reason, I presumed that the title story was a version of "The Widow of Ephesus" and that the "other fables" were fables. As a reading of the first few offerings shows, I was wrong. I keep the book in the collection to help others -- and me -- know that it is not a book of Aesopic fables.
Though the selections are not illustrated, the back cover's "watering eye" illustration is attractive. Kathryn Star Huggins. Cover Art by Raynola Dominguez. This is a book of short fictional stories based on contemporary pop psychology. The King of Crap is a king who does not know he is a king. Responding to early put-downs, he sees himself as nothing more than a shoveler of crap -- until a woman has confidence in him and encourages him to experience his own worth, in fact his kingliness.
The heroine of the story at last decides to take bricks out of her backpack and to stop putting them in. In the last line of the story, freed from her backpack, she drives out of backpack land. Translated by Lauren Na. Illustrated by Eunji Park. First published in by Hyeonamsa Publishing Company in Korea. I bought this book at the Joslyn, happy to find a fable book that they had discovered of which I had known nothing.
Alas, it is not a fable book at all. A young girl wanders into a library and encounters glorious pictures -- to be colored -- relating to a number of classic fairytales. The fairytales are identified by pages in the last few pages of this large-format book almost 10" square. Rachel Bright. Illustrated by Jim Field. First Scholastic Paperback Printing. NY: Scholastic. Having found a hardbound edition, I wanted to get a paperbound copy as well. Here it is.
First published in the UK in by Orchard Books. Rhyming quatrains. The diminutive mouse wants to be someone. He wants to roar! Third Scholastic Printing. Frederick Colin Tilney. Publisher not acknowledged. This is a curious published-upon-demand book. It represents some of the features that set me against this style of book.
It seems to be a reprinting, including illustrations, of a book first published in I write "seems" because the publishers do not indicate the date of the original which they are copying. The front cover presents a lively picture of the fox waiting for the crow to drop his circle of cheese. The back cover strangely reverts to a French-language commendation of La Fontaine's fables. Turn two pages inside the book and we see the erroneous title for the frontispiece "The heart of Thyrsis left" whereas the list of illustrations four pages later has the correct "The heart of Thyrsis leapt.
Of course the colored illustrations are here rendered in black-and-white. The original was printed, as one finds here on the title page, by London: J. Dent and Sons in London and by E. Dutton in New York. One looks here in vain for an acknowledgement of the publisher of this printing.
Tomi Ungerer. This is a lavish large edition of some of Tomi Ungerer's best work. Even the box and the cover are pretty! I have to admit right away that I believe I was deceived by someone's description of this book as "8 Fables by Tomi Ungerer. While he himself describes his stories as "fables," they are, I believe, longer stories that teach things as fables teach things. I read the first two stories and enjoyed them thoroughly. Similarly, "Zeralda's Ogre" shows how "The stomach knows how to feed the heart. Soon enough, local ogres and ogresses are feasting sumptuously on her recipes and have "all lost their taste for children.
Compiled by David W. Introduction by John E. As John Petty's introduction makes clear, this book looks beyond the usual fascination -- well deserved, of course -- with Walt Kelly's "Pogo" comic strips to a fruitful time when Kelly, after working on Disney's "Fantasia," "Dumbo," and "Pinocchio" and before developing "Pogo" worked for Western Publishing and Dell Comics. What we find here is a mixture of one-page presentations of nursery rhymes and longer narratives, most 6 to 20 pages in length, gathered here in six chapters.
One sample coming close to some fable situations is "Elephunnies" , but the story goes through many stages. I think Kelly is at his best presenting and parodying traditional nursery rhymes. A good example of playing with nursery rhymes is "Mix-up" on Other than the pairing of fox and crow on , I can find no reference to or use of Aesopic fable materials here. But, oh, the visual artistry is exquisite! People reading "Fables" in the title here will wonder if there really are fables, and so I keep the book in the collection. Retold by Tom Baker.
Designed by Brenda McCallum. This is a collection strong on engaging stories. The designs along the way are not remarkable. That could be a cheese dropping from the crow's beak toward the fox below on the cover; both have red in their eyes. Some stories are new to me, like "The Priest and the Robber" Some have a good deal of magic, like "The Boy's Toe Bone" I am happy to see "Stone Soup" included in a book like this One seldom sees "The Green Jackass" The greedy jackal gets caught inside an elephant carcass!
The stories are well told. If one wanted to give a contemporary little collection of well-told tales, including fables, this would surely be a book to consider. Brian E. Beam" Maue. This book helped me learn that "CreateSpace" is Amazon's publishing arm for independent publishers. This book's front cover features a bed with a book resting on the pillow -- and Aesopic figures moving toward it. There are eight fables on pages, with simple black-and-white cartoon illustrations. The back cover claims that this book combines the fables with a "variety of virtuous verse schemes and poetic puns.
In LM, the mouse first offers King Lion the option of changing his behavior before the mouse will free him from his net. The last story, "The Caterpillars," pits "Try" against "Not" to dramatize two life styles. Translation: Tper Tradurre Srl. Illustrations: Manuela Adreani. Milan, Italy: White Star Kids. In this large-format book, twenty fables are given two pages each after an introduction. White Star did the book in Italian, also in Might Adreani have been the author as well as the artist? Only "Esopo" is listed on their website as the author of the Italian edition.
Adreani paints with a broad brush. A single scene is the background for each two-page spread, with text usually on just one of the pages. She plays in delightful fashion with scale. Thus in the first story, DLS, a fox a few inches high sits on the nose of the donkey and raises the snout of the lion-skin. The cover illustration comes from "The Donkey and the Frogs," which is new to me. A donkey gets stuck carrying wood through water and complains; frogs ask what he would do if he had been there for as long as the frogs have. The book appears on Amazon with the curious illustration for "The Wolves and the Sheep.
The Amazon cover turns this picture 90 degrees upright, so that the sheep climb up to the wolf's snout. In a surprising change, it is a chough who tries to join the crows but is rejected both by them and then by his fellows. Sometimes it is hard for me to understand the artist's logic, as when the quack frog rests on the back of the fox who sees through him. The English is also a little off here as the fox asks "How is it possible for you to heal others when you can't even heal own limp?
Much more telling is the great illustration of the fox trapped in a tree by his own enlarged stomach My first prize goes to the illustration for FK, including the looming figure in the background This is creative work! Translated by V. With illustrations by Arthur Rackham and others, hand-coloured by Barbara Frith. Afterword by Anna South. This book is a reissue of a book published in by Collector's Library.
It includes numbered fables and so is a "complete and unabridged" copy of what was first published by Heinemann and by Doubleday in The hand-coloring is nicely done.
For examples, notice the court scene on and "The Bald Man and the Fly" on Less well done are the illustrations already colored by Rackham. The dust jacket has the smiling fox serving a very large platter to a stork on the front and, on the back, the fox emptying an amphora's last drop, with "Slow and steady wins the race" somewhat illogically above that illustration. Written and illustrated by Britton LaTulippe. The front cover features a dramatic head-shot of an elephant with a blue eye, while the back cover features many animals and a few humans in cartoon form.
Most fables here are two or three pages long. Texts generally receive one page, and each story receives a full-page colored illustration. Perhaps most dramatic of these shows the elephant from the cover about to step on a rat who has been propounding that there is really no difference between the elephant and him The final illustration is also strong: a colorful kestrel woos a female eagle but holds only a tiny mouse in his claw.
The narratives are creative. The turtle expands the length of the short race suggested by the hare. The mouse loosens a cherry that falls on the lion's nose, just as the branch pokes him in the eye and the mouse lands on the lion's head. The fox at first asks for a bite of the cheese. The ram does not even notice the crow who is trying to lift him aloft. Not a shepherd but a guard sheep gets bored and cries "Wolf! A cook who rescues the cat from the fire then beats her for stealing the chestnuts, while the monkey is curled up sleeping.
The vulture notices the limping giraffe and squawks "Injured giraffe.
Translation of «Meeresschildkröte» into 25 languages
The bear prevails and kills the giraffe, though the bear has been seriously wounded. The lion prevails but has been seriously wounded. The vulture enjoys the giraffe for breakfast, the bear for lunch, and the lion for dinner.

MSA 16 has a key line: "You're absolutely right! The donkey just runs off when it falls off the pole. TMCM 28 has a key line in both venues "It's nothing to be afraid of. Another good illustration shows the frogs pleading before Zeus WC has a surprising moral: "Sometimes being helpful is its own reward" The wolf in sheep's clothing gets away from the shepherd who discovers him TB is well illustrated There is a T of C at the beginning. Valdemar Paulsen NA. With Pictures by Milo Winter. What is different here? First the title. Secondly, the publisher. There are further surprises here.
The book is, as far as I can tell, a literal reproduction of the original. Why then say "More than Classic Fables for Children! This edition still fails to credit Valdemar Paulsen, as copies of the book did from the beginning, though others who used portions of it acknowledged Paulsen. A further surprise is that Bodemann seems to know nothing of this book, or of anything attributed to Milo Winter. A final mystery with this particular copy is that I bought it on eBay, and the seller is listed as treasurebookisland.
Why then, did the book come with a Barnes and Noble invoice?
I wrote earlier that the versions of the fables here have a steady eye on correct children's behavior. The stories' actions are carefully motivated, sometimes even over-motivated. In fact, the stories have a tendency to overkill. There are good statements from the characters, made to themselves when talk with others would be inappropriate. There are some double morals. Liza Blake and Kathriyn Vomero Santos. Here is a very helpful volume of some pages.
It contains Arthur Golding's "A Moral Fabletalk" entire and parts or all of four other significant Renaissance translations, starting with Caxton in The last selections are from John Ogilby's two multiply-edited publications. The other two are new to me: Richard Smith's translation of Henryson and John Brinsley's school publication. Among the helps along the way, do not miss the "Table of Fables" on One of the greatest contributions of the book is to produce Golding's work so nicely.
One recognizes illustration after illustration that jump out as significant in the fable tradition. The same is true for Ogilby. The introductions, cross-references, and lists of emendations are all helpful. I am sorry that it has taken me a year and a half to get back to this work! Illustrated by Scott Gustafson. NY: Artisan: Workman Publishing. CP gets one strong double-page One can see the water rising among the stones. Gustafson makes the "Emperor" all the more striking by placing the story in a kingdom of dogs.
The naked emperor thus wears a medal and a long wig, while all of his fellow dogs are in sumptuous court clothing. The Emperor tells himself that "the procession must go on," and "the chamberlains followed behind, carrying the hem of a robe that wasn't there" BW involves three different partial scenes on two pages, well arranged alongside text My prize goes to BC with its emphasis on the applauding audience of mice The text starts dramatically "The mice had had enough!
Ildiko Boldizsar. Illustrated by Csilla Koszeghy. Budapest: Mora: Konyvkiado. Others of the fifteen or so full-page illustrations may well be of fables. On 8 a fox looks up at a rooster on a tree branch. That could well be UP. On 26 a fox sits on a frozen lake with his tale frozen into the icy water behind him. On 81, a clever rabbit runs across the backs of crocodiles lined up like a bridge of stones to hop over. Check the FS image again.
Can a wing and vase ever look that way? Which is in front of which? John Lubans. Salem, OR: Ezis Press. I enjoy this book and even find John Luibans something of a kindred spirit. To these Luibans adds a number of things. First of all there are what I would call ruminations, reflecting well on how the fable applies to life. Then there are fables from others, including especially himself.
Meaning of "Meeresschildkröte" in the German dictionary
My hat is off to anyone who, after the thousands of fables that have been created in our literary tradition, makes a new one. I do note that Lubans' fables seem longer than the traditional Aesop fables he uses. To these texts are added simple, pleasing silhouettes,like the dramatic gesture outlined on the cover. The book also makes room for personal notes from readers. It all adds up for me to a valuable book. The fables are grouped by themes under seven chapters, with two to eight themes per chapter. Bravo, John Lubans! Illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier.
First Atheneium printing. NY: Atheneium. Here is a new version of a book already in the collection, but from a new publisher and with a more engaging visual artist. Two stories have been added since the edition in the collection: "Phoebe" and "Sally. But then a bear comes and steals the honey.
Phoebe is happy that she smells the flowers! Sally is a slow raindrop who ends up because of her slowness not in a big mud puddle but in a lovely rainbow. The characters in most stories here are identified as specific animals. Genevieve in the first story seems to be a human in the text but is well pictured as a cat. That shift takes something of the sting out of praising her carelessness. Caleb and Conrad in the last story are also humans, but the illustrations of them move towards ducks or chicks, I think.
The book was apparently first published in by Lippincott. There are now nine enjoyable stories. Good fun! Illustrated by various artists.. This 10" square book contains six stories, each about twelve pages in length. Each story is illustrated by a different artist. The stories are indeed well fashioned for children. The artistry is simple in each case but decidedly varied from story to story. Both characters in FS are female. Among the most curious illustrations is the view inside the dead hen that had produced golden eggs 45! The first finish to WL seems to say something like "In this story, evil wins in the end.
