1st edition different than picture; each fable illustrated by different artist
Reviewed in the United States on January 20, 2015
Based on the reviews I made sure to purchase a hardback edition. However, we purchased a used edition from an independent seller. We got the 1st edition from Chronicle books, however it did not look like the pictures. I have attached some pictures to show. The Rose and the butterfly picture is included in the book but is not on the cover. Each fable is illustrated by a different artist. This is an interesting approach, but I don't always care for all the styles.
I bought this for my daughter who is 3. She's a bit young to understand the moral lesson of the fables, however this is a nice book to have in a child's library. I have been enjoying reading the fables which I hadn't read since I was a child, as now I am better able to appreciate the morals.
