The race is on--the race, quick as lightning, against the tortoise, who not only moves slowly but carries his entire house on his back. Off they go. In a flash, the hare is yards away, flying over the grass. The tortoise has barely moved. Does he have any chance of winning?

About the Author:

Brian Wildsmith is one of the most venerable figures in children's illustration today and celebrates over forty years of publishing with OUP - a truly remarkable achievement.

Review:

`With the Fables of La Fontaine, Wildsmith turned Wordsmith, retelling the tales with a simplicity that enhances the complexity of the illustrations. In The Hare and the Tortoise, the animals are seen against dazzling, semi-abstract backgrounds, with pinks and purples dotted with shimmering,
close-toned blobs of viridian green and cerulean blue that dance before your eyes.
'
Joanne Carey, The Guardian
