But both Castle, in the retelling, and Weevers, in the depiction, skirt burlesque: if you can conceive of the Tortoise/Hare contest as a public event (tickets, balloons) in the life of Britain's storied small animals, this is an acceptable.

But both Castle, in the retelling, and Weevers, in the depiction, skirt burlesque: if you can conceive of the Tortoise/Hare contest as a public event (tickets, balloons) in the life of Britain's storied small animals, this is an acceptable rendition thereof. The fable amplified and was something about Tortoise that really annoyed Hare.

This is a nice little retelling of the classic Aesop tale. In this version Hare has been reworked as a sporty runner (it was written in the late 1980's after all), and Tortoise has become a reclusive scholar who is writer of a tome called "Great Tortoises of the World".

Neither Hare nor Tortoise understands the other's world or concerns which is where the race comes in.

From the book:

Just as Tortoise had sat down by the river with his book,

Hare came along. There was something about Tortoise

that really annoyed Hare, but he couldn't figure out

what it was. Maybe it was the way Tortoise stayed in bed

until lunchtime, or the way he never cared what time

it was, or the way he smiled that silly smile as if he knew

some wonderful secret.

"Just out of bed, Tortoise? Hare asked. "You'll never

get anyplace lying around reading books all the time"

"Beats running in circles," replied Tortoise. "Where does

that get you?"

"Places you'll never see," said Hare. "I'm the fastest

are around."

Three Stars. [C+]. Nice retelling of the Aesop tale that fleshes out the story with a cast of appealing characters. The artwork has a nice archaic feel, not unlike that of the pastels of Peter Rabbit.

When the Hare taunts the slow Tortoise to himself, he just ignores the Hare.But when he taunts him in front of the all the forest animals, the Tortoise loses it and declares that if a race was held he could surely win against the Hare. So the animals set up a race for the tortoise and the Hare.
BANG!!! The fox(appointed judge by the forest animals)sounds the horn and they take off.Who do you think will win? The Hare ,as usual, runs faster than wind itself, but the Tortoise goes as slow as he normally would.This story isn't about making fun or calling people names, but "no matter if you're fast, or tall, or even skiny you are.You're no better than those who are slow or short or over weight." For ages between 4-9.I hope you enjoy ths book.
