Hare and Tortoise

author: Alison Murray

Hare (Leapus swifticus) can barely stay still for a minute. Heís the fastest on the farm. Tortoise (Slow and steadicus) can stay still for a very long time. She has occasionally been mistaken for a rock. So when they decide to have a race, Hare is certain to win . . . isnít he? Through the meadow, around the duck pond, and straight into the carrot field. Carrots? Oh, dear. Whether encountering the classic tale for the first time or tracing the racecourse map to relive it, children will be quick to realize Hareís folly and eager to join the cheering for easygoing, persistent Tortoise. She may be slow, but watch her go!

Alison Murray offers an enchanting retelling of a much-loved Aesopís fable with a mischievous twist.
