The classic Aesop fable has been given a contemporary twist in The Race. Featuring the instantly recognizable Tortoise and Hare, this delightful re-telling features a rhyming text and an exciting race around the world, via boats, planes and even a hot air balloon. In Hares haste, he runs into all kinds of traveling trouble, while slow-and-steady Tortoise makes a leisurely trip to the end destination -New York! Lush illustrations combine with witty text to make the familiar morals of patience and diligence ring true for a whole generation.
